2018 rate review

The Minister for Health today made an announcement to release the approved 2018 rates increase for all registered Australian health funds.

This review takes into account a range of factors such as the rising cost of healthcare services due to advances in medical technology as well as our ageing population.

Effective 1 April 2018, GU Health’s average annual increase is 2.84 per cent. The increase will vary depending on your cover option. In mid-March you’ll receive a letter from us providing you with your new contribution amount.

From 1 April, any contributions you make toward your membership will be calculated at the new rate, if your plan renews on this date. If you’ve paid your membership in advance of this date, the new rate will take effect from your next payment.

Please keep in mind that this increase in your contribution is different to the rate adjustment from the change to the Australian Government Rebate on Private Health Insurance, which will also take effect from 1 April 2018.

Please refer to our Member FAQs here to provide you with more information.
