Official Health Insurer

Welcome to
Westfund.

We're partnering with the Panthers to enable excellent health outcomes for our communities. We're offering Panthers Members (and their families) a discount* on our range of covers.

* Discount is not available on Ambulance Only products.

Where value meets values


We're the Official Health Insurer of the Penrith Panthers

We provide coverage for the Panthers players and more than 100,000 other members, making us the eighth largest open fund in Australia. We exist for member benefit, not for shareholders and we support initiatives that promote health in our regional areas.

We have members, not customers and we treat you like an individual.

We're always looking to fill the gaps in local healthcare and continue to provide ongoing regional investment and support. We have invested millions of dollars in these areas to deliver much-needed services to our members.
