Australian Unity proposes lower premium increase

10 Feb 2016
Australian Unity has taken this step mindful of Minister Ley’s recent initiatives to pursue ways to reduce the pressure on insurers to meet the cost of medical devices such as prostheses.

The original premium increase submission proposed by Australian Unity was the lowest possible increase given the rapidly increasing costs of healthcare and prudential considerations, but a lower premium can now be offered in the light of potential future cost savings driven by the Minister’s initiatives.

Australian Unity stands ready to assist the government in further efforts to achieve root and branch reform of the health system, particularly in the area of reducing waste and inefficiency.
