Private health insurance report 2012

The ACCC has prepared its fourteenth report to the Australian Senate on anti-competitive and other practices by health funds and providers in relation to private health insurance.

The ACCC sought submissions from interested parties on the matters outlined in the consultation letter by  21 September 2012.

This year the ACCC will examine issues that reduce the extent of health cover and increase consumers’ out-of-pocket expenses which have not formed the focus of previous ACCC reports to the Senate.  In particular, the ACCC will inquire into a perceived lack of recognition of certain allied health care providers by health funds.
