HCF Health Insurance is Australia's largest not-for-profit health insurer. As part of their commitment to making health insurance easy to understand they have created an interactive website called "Going to Hospital?". Users are taken through an interactive Q&A session where they are asked to explain what health problems they have. In response, the website explains what surgical procedure is required, how the procedure is undertaken, what type of medical staff are involved, how long the procedure takes as well as recovery outcomes and costings.
The website is located at http://healthtopics.com.au
HCF (http://www.hcf.com.au) is an Australian not-for-profit health fund founded in 1932 to provide a means for the people to insure themselves against the cost of in-patient care in hospitals.
