The 17th National Health Insurance Summit will provide discussion on legislative reform, regulatory changes, and the future direction of the Private Health Insurance (PHI) industry.

High claims inflation and increasing utilisation costs means that premiums continue to rise, perpetuating the trend for members to either downsize their level of cover or opt out of having any level of cover due to growing dissatisfaction. Recent reforms mean the PHI industry has the opportunity to overhaul the current system in order to provide a higher level of transparency and affordable value for consumers.

Health insurers are on the lookout for new business strategies and are turning towards innovative solutions to overcome health inflation and better manage costs. New medical innovation and advances in technology are providing the next step forward to help facilitate business efficiencies in the PHI industry.

The summit will bring together key industry representatives to address current challenges, as well as offering new strategies and solutions to appeal to their members.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • KEYNOTE ADDRESS | APRA’s Current Views of the Private Health Insurance Industry
  • Improving Transparency Around Medical Out-of-Pocket Costs
  • Declining Health Insurance Membership
  • The Future Buyers: How Valued-Based Healthcare Will Impact the Medtech Industry?
  • What is Really Driving PHI Premium Increases-What Can we do About It?
  • Future Innovations for Private Health Insurance
  • Changing Health Insurance to Target Millennials
  • New Channels for Distributing PHI
  • Dealing with Government Policy and Regulator Risk
  • Entering the Genomic Age: Impact of Personal Genome Information on Healthcare and Our Lives

We have now begun preparing for the congress and are currently calling for expressions of interest to present papers within the summit program. If you are interested in presenting please email
