UniHealth’s rate increase substantially lower than big insurers

UniHealth members will receive one of the lowest rate increases across the industry on 1 April, following Health Minister Greg Hunt’s private health insurance contribution rate increase announcement.

As a health fund that is all about its members, UniHealth is proud to deliver an average rate increase of 2.84%, which is substantially lower than BUPA (3.99%), NIB (3.93%), HCF (3.39%) and Medibank (3.88%).

Mr Brad Joyce, CEO of UniHealth, said the announcement shows the fund’s ongoing commitment to its members.

“Our members are our priority. That’s why it’s important for us to provide great value health insurance by keeping our rates as low as possible,” said Mr Joyce.

While rate increases have been announced, the Government hasn’t confirmed any changes to the Australian Government Rebate on Private Health Insurance.
