Private Health Insurance Reforms - How Will It Affect Me?
So you might have heard that private health insurance covers are changing, but what does this mean for you?
Government reforms help make private health insurance easier for our patients to choose the best cover for them and their families.
Most of the reforms come into effect from 1 April 2019, but some are already underway.
The reforms include the following changes:
Private hospital cover will be classified into 4 easy to understand tiers — Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic
Health insurers can offer
Better cover for women's health services
The Private Health Insurance Ombudsman has new powers to investigate complaints
Health insurers have until 1 April 2020 to introduce new Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic tiers for their hospital policies.
If you already have private health insurance, your insurer will send specific information about your policy, or you can view new policies here.
