launches new Health Insurance Comparison Engine!

July 26, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Little more than half of Australians currently have some form of private health insurance. Many mistakenly believe that Medicare will cover them for any medical treatment but this can be a costly mistake that is realised all too late.

If you're one of those that hasn't got round to arranging health insurance cover for yourself yet, it's easy to be overwhelmed by the range of policies on offer. Fail to do your research properly and you could easily find yourself stuck with a policy that doesn't actually cover your needs. Policies themselves aren't the only cause for confusion changes to health insurance rebates on July 1st have also left consumers stumped.

Consumers may be more confused than ever but this is where comes into its own.

Whether you're after general health insurance advice or information on specific aspects on health insurance benefits or support for certain conditions, you'll find it all here. As content on the website grows, the goal is to provide a comprehensive overview of all things health insurance related.

That's not the only good reason to bookmark! The site's mission is based around two things: helping visitors to find the right cover, and to help them save money at the same time. Many Australians are unaware that there are a number of ways to save money on health insurance premiums without resorting to cheap policies that don't provide much cover at all.

"Many Australians still don't have health insurance and this is something that we're hoping to address by taking the confusion out of buying health insurance," says Jonathan Leane, founder. "We're also strongly aware that many Australians are feeling the pinch right now and that may encourage them to look at cheaper policies we aim to let them know that this can actually cost a lot more in the long run when the very limited cover and subsequent out-of-pocket costs are taken into consideration, and that there are ways to reduce premium costs without sacrificing on coverage."

We are committed to taking the headache out of your health insurance search by providing information to help you to understand your options.
