Health Insurance Mythbusting: The April Price Hike
We all know that premiums go up once a year, but the amount they change varies wildly between funds.
Private health funds look set to raise their premiums by a further 4% in April 2018. It’s an increase that looks set to add around $200 to the average family policy and around $100 to a single’s policy.
But there’s a key piece of information that your health fund might not want you to know. Not all funds will pass on these higher costs to their customers. In 2017 some policies increased by only 0.17% while others skyrocketed by a staggering 13.02%. Yet most Aussies will simply absorb this extra cost, never knowing how easy it is to start paying less.
We believe Australians deserve better value from their health insurance. And that’s why we’re committed to making finding affordable health cover quick, simple and effective. By comparing with us Aussies were able to save an average of $375.44 on their yearly premiums last March.
If you’re surprised at just how easy it is to overpay for health insurance, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to join the thousands of clever Aussies who are already paying less for the premiums.
Our service helps you quickly and easily compare health insurance options to find a policy that suits your needs. You can experiment with funds, as well as levels and types of cover to find a policy you want at a price you’re happy to pay.
This helps you make an informed choice about your health cover so you know that you’re only paying for what you actually need.
We’ve found that older Australians are especially vulnerable to falling victim to the common health insurance traps like staying on an outdated policy, being talked into a higher level of cover and fund loyalty incentives.

With their help it’s never been easier to understand what you’re paying and why. You can compare your current level of cover to similar policies and see exactly what you could be saving, all at no cost or obligation to you.
