The AMA’s Private Health Insurance Report Card 2021 released late last year is now available as a reading module on the doctorportal Learning.
The report helps people navigate the complex private health insurance sector, which is still under pressure from declining membership over the past five years. Although the past 12 months saw a significant increase in people taking out health insurance, the number of older people doing so still far outstrips younger, healthier demographics.
As Australia tries to chart its way out of the COVID-19 pandemic, the private sector’s contribution to elective surgery will be essential to tackling the growing waiting lists for critical procedures.
A CPD Certificate of Completion can be issued for those who follow the course.
