Welcome to HAMBS

HAMBS supplies and supports the HAMBS (Hospital and Medical Benefits System) application - a sophisticated and user-friendly software and information technology solution for the private health insurance industry in Australia.

Established in 1991, HAMBS was formed when the then users of the HAMBS application purchased the intellectual property from the original developer of the software. At that time, there were three HAMBS employees looking after 18 member Funds.  In a rapidly growing industry with increased regulation, technological advances and in an increased competitive environment, HAMBS continues to grow and expand on the services available to our customers.  Today, HAMBS has over 80 professional staff servicing our 23 health funds nationwide including the hosting of the application and network services for 19 funds.  

Our approach, based on co-operation, quality and integrity, is backed by superior applications and services specifically designed to meet today's health insurance information technology needs. Click on the navigation links above to find out more about HAMBS.
