Private Health Insurance Changes

Private health insurance reforms

The Australian Government has introduced reforms that will make private health insurance simpler and will help people choose the cover that best suits their needs.

For the first time, private health insurers will be required to classify their private hospital cover into four easy understand tiers: Gold, Silver, Bronze or Basic.

All of the reforms have now started.

Many insurers are now using the new Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic tiers of hospital cover. Insurers have until 1 April 2020 to introduce the new tiers for all hospital policies.
