TAL Health Sense

The rewards of taking care of your health

At TAL, health is at the heart of what we do. We’re always looking for new ways to empower you to protect your physical, mental and financial wellbeing. Because your health and well-being are as important to us as they are to you, we’ve developed TAL Health Sense – our prevention program to enhance the health and wellbeing of Australians.

TAL Health Sense currently involves two kinds of prevention activities:
  • Primary prevention, focusing on preventing a condition before it occurs, For example, having a healthy BMI can prevent conditions such as diabetes mellitus. Our TAL Health Sense program is an example of primary prevention.
  • Secondary prevention, which is concerned with detecting a condition early to improve health outcomes. This typically occurs through preventative screening programs such as regular blood glucose monitoring to identify diabetes mellitus at an early stage. Our TAL Health Sense Plus program is an example of Secondary prevention.

We created the TAL Health Sense BMI discount to support and encourage your long-term good health, by offering up to 15% off your Accelerated Protection Life, Critical Illness and/or TPD Insurance premiums if your BMI is between 19.0 and 28.0.

It’s quick and simple to access with your financial adviser: just confirm your BMI when you’re applying for insurance with TAL and your discount will be calculated and applied automatically.

 Key features:

  • Discounts of up to 15% on Life, Critical Illness and/or TPD insurance.
  • Applied to your policy for life.
  • No tests, extra application forms or membership fees.
