The Financial Standard reports that fund members will now have the option to sign up to Medibank Private at a discounted rate.
The Medibank Private VIP cover includes no excess for children and a dental treatment twice a year.
The fund's marketing and business development manager Robert Clancy said: "There was an increase over the past year on enquiries if we offered health insurance, so we surveyed our members and the insurance market and found Medibank Private was the most logical option."
Clancy said if Catholic Super members measured the new offering they would find it compared well against other health insurance options in the market.
