Rate Rise Encourages Aussies To Re-Evaluate Health Insurance Policies

Sydney, Australia (PressExposure) March 04, 2009 -- At first glance, the average $3 a week increase would seem to be a fair compromise between the Health Funds' need to be in a position to pay claims when they are needed, and the Government's need to limit any increases to the minimum. It also recognizes some of the inescapable truths about health care in general, most significant of which is that our population is ageing, and will need more care through their longer lifespan.

Even though the amount of the increase is not entirely unexpected in the prevailing conditions, it will undoubtedly focus attention on the value offered to individuals and families by Private Health Insurance. Given the range of options available, this is not as straightforward as, say, insuring the car or the house.

"Undoubtedly, many will take the opportunity to re-evaluate their choice of private health cover, and will join the wave of people going online to research, evaluate and choose a level of health cover that represents the most relevant and best value for their particular needs."
