Private Health Insurance News

NOTE:  In the same period premiums up 7.3% and Benefits paid out 9.3%

Health Minister Nicola Roxon says Private Health Insurance Administration Council (PHIAC) figures released today show the number of people with private cover is increasing and revenue and benefit payouts are also on the rise.

“Those who made dire predictions of a drop in the number of people in private health insurance funds have been proved wrong yet again,” Ms Roxon said.

“At the end of the 2008/09 financial year, 44.5 per cent of all Australians were covered by private hospital insurance, an increase of 2.2 per cent on June 2008 figures.
