Medibank adopted all the voluntary reforms because we believe it’s the right thing to do for our customers.
But more needs to be done. With increasing rates of chronic disease and mental health issues, combined with an ageing population, more pressure is being placed on our health system.
It’s why we are actively pursuing new approaches to delivering healthcare outside of the hospital, focusing on preventative health and alternative care settings, and targeting chronic disease.

We continue to address out-of-pocket costs and push for greater cost and quality transparency for patients.
And we’re sharing our expertise with others to help improve Australia’s health system – expanding our chronic disease management program CareComplete to other health payors and partnering with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs to protect them against incorrect claims.
