CHOICE advocates for the needs of consumers in the health insurance sector. We think people need access to clear information, at the right time and in a convenient format, to compare their product to others that meet their needs.
"People need equitable, affordable access to quality healthcare. Health insurance products that provide very low value for customers, through restricted or excluded cover policies, undermine this," says CHOICE campaigns and policy team leader Katinka Day.
How to save on health insurance
"Private health insurers would have us believe we need health insurance, but for many people that might not always be the case. So if you're struggling with the cost of private health insurance, it's worth using CHOICE's free tool, Do I Need Health Insurance?
"For people who do opt to take out health insurance, it can be complex and confusing. To make things easier, use CHOICE's comparison tool to find a policy that meets your needs," says Day.
