We’ve changed our name to ‘Private Healthcare Australia’9 November 2011
Our new name is ‘Private Healthcare Australia’.
We used to be the AHIA, but no longer!
We still represent the Private Health Insurance industry and the millions of Australians who have chosen Private Healthcare Cover through our industry health funds.
We are now over 12 million Australians strong
There are now over 12 million Australians with Private Healthcare: families, grandparents, parents, children, couples and singles.
These Australians have chosen Private Healthcare because it provides better quality healthcare – better cover – better access – better care – for themselves and their families.
In fact, over 50% of Australians now rely on Private Healthcare.
Our vision is to work independently and with governments to provide Australians with the best cover, the best access, and the best healthcare services in the world.
Our Role and Mission
Our role is to represent the over 12 million Australians who choose better quality healthcare services. Our mission is to put their healthcare needs first.
Our Quality Standards
We clearly stand for the provision of ‘better quality’ healthcare services for all our members
