A carrot and a big stick : understanding private health insurance and older Australians /

by Temple, Jeromey | National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre | Adair, Tim.

Publisher: Braddon, A.C.T. National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre 2011Description: PDF.Other title: NSPAC research monograph ; no. 1.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2011 Bibliography pp. 36-38 Appendices pp. 39-46Summary: Healthy and productive ageing rests considerably upon timely and affordable access to health care. In the near future, expenditure on health care is expected to rise as population ageing places heavier demands on the public health care system. The Federal Treasury projects government expenditure on health care on those aged 65 and over is to increase seven-fold from 2010 to 2050, and 12-fold for the over 85 age group over the same period. To alleviate pressure from the public health care system, from the late 1990s the then Howard government introduced key reforms to the private health insurance sector, which sought to encourage Australians of all ages to purchase private health insurance. These reforms are colloquially referred to as 'carrots' and 'sticks': those that provide incentives to purchase, and disincentives not to purchase, private health insurance. This intervention was considered necessary because over time there had been an ongoing decrease in the number of younger, healthier persons with health insurance relative to older persons and those with more complex needs - a process health economists term as an adverse selection spiral.Availability: (1)

Healthcare 2010-11 : comparing performance across Australia : report to the Council of Australian Governments /

by McClintock, Paul | COAG Reform Council.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W.

Includes bibliographical references.Summary: This is the third Reform Council's report assessing progress under COAG?s National Healthcare Agreement. One of the key findings from the report was that while there has been progress in improving hospital care, it?s not consistent across Australia. For example, elective surgery waiting times have improved in a number of jurisdictions, but some of the states with larger populations are lagging. The report also finds that health outcomes are still not equal for all Australians. For example, more people delayed seeing a GP due to cost, and a quarter of people report financial barriers to seeing a dentist.Availability: (1)
