The 20th Annual Health Insurance Summit will take place as a face-to-face event on the 23-24th June 2021 at the Swissôtel Sydney. It will also be available virtually.

The summit will continue to feature a balance of perspectives addressing a diverse range of critical issues, changing priorities, innovative ideas and solutions whilst considering the impact of COVID19 on consumers and the private health landscape in Australia.

“At a time when private health insurance is only going to come under greater political and media scrutiny, the Summit is a vital platform to help us all understand the sector better and appreciate the work we need to do to protect and sustain it.”
