Australians turn backs on private health insurance:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The decline in private health insurance cover in Australia continues. In the past three months, 91,000 have dropped out of schemes, leaving only 31% with private cover. To try to stop the fall, the government included a AUS$1.7 billion ($1.2 billion) reform package in this year's federal budget. It hopes this will deter people from using schemes for a one-off, serious illness and leaving when they are well, reports The Lancet.
