The Liberals are still in power: Here’s why it’s time to shop around for health insurance

Online comparison service helps Aussies find a better deal on health cover, despite a lack of policy in place to control premium rises.

The election results are in—but what do they mean for your health cover? With the Liberal party here to stay, insurers could have free reign over prices.

The Liberal government’s health package is focused on medical research and the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. While these are worthy causes, they aren’t likely to lower your health insurance premiums.

Delay in switching health cover, and it could cost you. Over the last five years, premiums have been rising faster than wages.* With no plans to make health insurance cheaper, that trend could continue. Comparing health cover in the early days following the election could help you save hundreds of dollars.
