At the start of April, 2019, the Australian Government is introducing changes to private health insurance.
These changes have been created by the government to give greater clarity around health insurance and the services covered. The purpose is to make it easier to compare hospital products so individuals can find the cover which best suits their needs. The proposed changes will see insurance to be classified into four tiers – Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic.
What does this mean and how does this affect me?
The Australian federal government has created a factsheet to create clarification around which treatments are included in Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic policies.
