Private Healthcare Australia CEO Rachel David says the private health insurance sector struggles to attract younger members. She was commenting on a proposal that would see younger Australians offered premiums at a discounted rate, with the Federal Government having been briefed about the idea. David does not think that older policy holders would object to the idea, as having more younger members in the system helps to offset the higher cost of older members, who tend to make claims more often.
