Rachel David says ( about Rachel David ) : “The government policy of having a significant part of the Australian population in private health, to take the pressure off the public system, starts to unravel," says Savvides. "If that gets out of balance you end up with a very expensive public system with long queues and pretty unhappy customers". The rate of hospital insurance coverage has dropped from 47.3 per cent of the population to 44.1 per cent over the past five years, according to the latest data from the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority. And the amount funds have to pay out in benefits is rising faster than their premium revenue from members (3.6 per cent versus 2.6 per cent for the year to September) according to APRA, which has raised concerns about funds' financial stability. Rachel David, from health insurance lobby group Private Healthcare Australia, says the challenges the private system faces are real but "absolutely fixable". "And it’s essential that we do fix them because without the people who are able to afford it paying something, our health system is not sustainable,” External link

He comes off as this shy and reserved person but once you get to know him well, you’ll see that he is very outgoing. He is willing to step out of his comfort zone for his character. In this film, he does a lot of things dancing, surfing, stunts and it surprised all of us. Once he puts his mind to something, he goes about achieving it,” External link

Rachel David says ( about Rachel David ) : “The government policy of having a significant part of the Australian population in private health, to take the pressure off the public system, starts to unravel," says Savvides. "If that gets out of balance you end up with a very expensive public system with long queues and pretty unhappy customers". The rate of hospital insurance coverage has dropped from 47.3 per cent of the population to 44.1 per cent over the past five years, according to the latest data from the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority. And the amount funds have to pay out in benefits is rising faster than their premium revenue from members (3.6 per cent versus 2.6 per cent for the year to September) according to APRA, which has raised concerns about funds' financial stability. Rachel David, from health insurance lobby group Private Healthcare Australia, says the challenges the private system faces are real but "absolutely fixable". "And it’s essential that we do fix them because without the people who are able to afford it paying something, our health system is not sustainable,” External link

The rate of hospital insurance coverage has dropped from 47.3 per cent of the population to 44.1 per cent over the past five years, according to the latest data from the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority. And the amount funds have to pay out in benefits is rising faster than their premium revenue from members (3.6 per cent versus 2.6 per cent for the year to September) according to APRA, which has raised concerns about funds' financial stability. Rachel David, from health insurance lobby group Private Healthcare Australia, says the challenges the private system faces are real but "absolutely fixable". "And it’s essential that we do fix them because without the people who are able to afford it paying something, our health system is not sustainable,” External link

Rachel David says ( about Rachel David ) : “The government policy of having a significant part of the Australian population in private health, to take the pressure off the public system, starts to unravel," says Savvides. "If that gets out of balance you end up with a very expensive public system with long queues and pretty unhappy customers". The rate of hospital insurance coverage has dropped from 47.3 per cent of the population to 44.1 per cent over the past five years, according to the latest data from the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority. And the amount funds have to pay out in benefits is rising faster than their premium revenue from members (3.6 per cent versus 2.6 per cent for the year to September) according to APRA, which has raised concerns about funds' financial stability. Rachel David, from health insurance lobby group Private Healthcare Australia, says the challenges the private system faces are real but "absolutely fixable".
