Frequently asked questions

Why has my premium gone up more than the rate of inflation?

Healthcare costs are rising at a higher rate than inflation. Several factors contribute to this: the increasing use and cost of healthcare services, our ageing population, new medical technologies, and a rise in the incidence of chronic conditions. Medibank’s premiums need to keep pace with these rising costs to maintain the quality of cover and to meet our members' healthcare needs.
