Private health insurance coverage

The Senate Community Affairs Committee is conducting an Inquiry into the Private Health Insurance Legislation Amendment Bill 2009

If the Bill is passed, the amendments will add a category of “dependent child” under the Private Health Insurance Act 2007 by inserting the definition of “dependent child non-student”. This will allow insurers to charge a different premium for “dependent child non-students” under a family policy. A “dependent child non-student” is a person aged from 18 to 24 (inclusive), who does not have a partner, is not receiving a full time education at a school, college or university and is defined in a private health insurer‟s fund rules.
