Private Health Insurance
News has centred this week on a new private health insurance policy the Labor Party will take to the next election. The Productivity Commission (PC) will be asked to review of the private health system to improve the value, quality and affordability of health insurance. In the meantime annual PHI premium rises would be capped at 2% for 2 years.
