Health insurance suits some people, but it's like renting a house. You keep throwing money at it, but you are investing in someone else's house. VSPRY wants to support you to invest in your most important asset - you. It's a smart alternative to health insurance, where you get to call the shots.
Just like a savings account, you deposit a regular amount and earn income on your Health Stash balance. You sleep safe knowing that we give you the confidence and discipline to only spend your savings on health and wellness-related services. All deposits made to your Health Stash remain yours. You don't need to worry about rushing off to Specsavers at the end of the year to get that 2 for 1 deal on glasses, that you actually don't need. Paying into traditional health insurance is like renting a house that you'll never own, so if you stop your contributions, you have nothing to show for it. Your Health Stash is about building an asset for you, one that you feel proud of because it belongs to you.
You get to decide where to spend your Health Stash funds. Spend them on common procedures such as visits to the dentist, chiropractor, physio or optometrist. Or, spend them at the gym, at a sporting club, at the vet for your pet, with a naturopath, or any other practitioner that in your opinion assists you to live well. Your Health Stash gives you the power to decide what wellness means to you. It's a health plan designed by you, for you.

Let's be really clear - you can only spend what you have saved in your Health Stash. If you incur a medical bill and you don't have enough savings in your Health Saver, you will need to fund the difference from another source. However, the best part of this is that you are not funding someone else's healthcare, and you will only pay for what you use. Now you can have a health plan that covers services that you want.
If your income is more than $90,000 a year ($180,000 for families), it can make financial sense to buy low-cost hospital cover. Not only can Vspry help you grow your Health Stash balance, we can also help you access affordable hospital cover with the added benefits of avoiding the Medicare Levy Surcharge, and avoiding wait-lists for elective surgery.
