Private Health Insurance (Complying Product) Amendment Rules 2014 (No. 1)

The Private Health Insurance (Complying Product) Amendment Rules 2014 (No. 1) were registered on the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments on 31 January 2014. The Rules can be found on the Australian Government ComLaw website.

The Complying Product Amendment Rules amends Schedule 1, 2, 3 and 4 as referred to in Part 3(13) of the Private Health Insurance (Complying Product) Rules (No. 2) which commenced on 14 January 2011. The Rules remove references to rebate percentage amounts from the permitted information in the statement about a product subgroup of a complying product.

These amendments are necessary as recent legislative changes impact the payment of the Australian Government rebate on private health insurance. The amendments made by these Rules will come into effect from 7 February 2014.

If you require further information please telephone: (02) 6289 9853/24 hr answering machine or email the enquiry to Private Health Insurance Branch.
