How are the changes to premiums for Overseas Health Cover calculated?

Changes to premiums depend on factors like the general product claiming patterns of members and new technology or legislative changes and associated costs. Members who have Overseas Health Covers are typically not Australian residents, and generally do not have their treatments subsidised by Medicare, so the premiums on Overseas Health Covers reflect the full cost to insurers providing cover to members.
