The falling growth in the use of private healthcare

Melbourne Institute Virtual Colloquium

Since 2016 the growth in use of private health care has been declining due to falling membership of private health insurance and increasing financial pressure on households in the face of continuing increases in private health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs. We will describe the falling growth of the sector and discuss the potential consequences on both the private and public hospital sectors.

Presenter: Dr. Susan J. Mendez
