  • Help Save Your Federal Government 30% Rebate on Private Health Insurance

    Anyone else get this in their email??





    "I need to let you know about a planned change by the Government which, according to independent analysts, will result in substantial increases in premiums for ALL West Australians with private health cover.

    Currently almost everyone with private health insurance has at least 30% of their premium paid by the Federal Government in the form of a rebate.

    The Federal Government plans to reduce or remove this rebate for many health fund members.

    How will it impact you?

    The Government claims that the changes will target the wealthy. However, a new report by independent financial experts, Deloitte, estimates that the changes will:
    • increase premiums by 10% above what would otherwise be expected for ALL West Australians with private health cover
    • increase premiums by up to 40% for some individuals and families
    Help save your rebate

    HBF has no wish to become involved in the political process. However, as a not-for-profit health fund, we represent our members and will do everything we can to persuade the Federal Government to reconsider.

    But we need your help.

    Please visit saveyourrebate.com or an HBF branch to sign our petition to help persuade the Federal Government to abandon a measure that will hurt all HBF members.






    Regards,
