Important information for Medibank Private members

Medibank Private is taking action to increase shareholder profits by drastically limiting the value of their insurance product for their members.  These measures are touted at improving healthcare outcomes but, in truth, are without any evidence basis and are completely unvalidated.  Despite loyal premium payments, Medibank members are at risk of finding themselves completely without insurance coverage, at no fault of their own, their doctor, or their chosen Private Hospital.  This is the thin end of a tactical wedge being aimed between patients and their healthcare choices;  the endpoint would likely be similar to overseas models of Private Healthcare, where insurers dictate from which doctors and hospitals patients may receive care, as determined by the insurers' commercial interests.

Read what the Australian Private Hospitals Association has to say about the move here.  Remember, all Australians are entitled to switch Health Funds at any time without penalty.
