The one way you could be missing out on savings every year

The one way you could be missing out on savings every year

For many Australians, the cost of private health insurance is rising year on year, but most don’t realise that they could be paying significantly higher prices for services they will never use. Along with government health care funding cuts on July 1, Aussie battlers are having to become increasingly creative with how they save on the household budget. Thanks to a new comparison service, there might still be one area where you can make big savings, and it’s easier than you think.

Ground-breaking comparison service HealthInsuranceComparison.com.au is giving Aussie families a fighting chance by offering consumers the power to compare big brand health insurance policies side by side, saving them time and money, as they make informed choices about their private health cover.

The service comes as many older Australians are feeling increasingly stung by the perpetually rising cost of private health insurance in Australia. Health insurance premiums rose by a staggering 3.95 per cent in April this year, following a series of similarly high year on year increases since 2010.

“Health insurance is an overwhelming and expensive endeavour, and for many Aussies, they are paying exorbitantly high premiums for cover they will never use. For example, many couples with children who have left the nest are still paying for Family Cover,” says Founder Jonathan Leane. “We’ve created HealthInsuranceComparison.com.au to simplify the comparison process and make sure our customers only pay for services they need.”

Using the service, Australians can compare multiple health insurance brands, cover options and pricing all in the one place. The service saves time, but the biggest benefit for most are the dollar savings – in fact, last financial year their customers saved an average of $362.38.*

Since launching, thousands of happy Aussies have already jumped on board. Over 450,000 Australians used HealthInsuranceComparison.com.au to compare health insurance in the last financial year, citing saving money as their number one reason for using the site.

HealthInsuranceComparison.com.au is a trusted online service that makes comparison shopping for vital health insurance easy. With the click of a button, they can help you find an affordable policy by stripping away the cover you don’t use, while saving you money on what matters to you.
