A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that satisfaction with Australia’s private health insurers declined to 71.0% in October 2017, down by 0.2% points for the month and 3.4% points below the same time in 2016. This level is now well down on the peak of 76.4% recorded in June 2015 and is the lowest satisfaction rating since 2010. The top fund was Teachers Health with 83.4% satisfaction, followed by TUH Health Fund (82.8%), Defence Health (82.8%), CBHS (82.1%) and Health Partners (80.9%). The only funds to show improvements in satisfaction over the last 12 months were TUH Health Fund (up 3.7% points) and Australian Unity (up 2.1% points). Less than half the members of the major health funds would be "highly likely" (with a score of 8 to 10 on a ten point scale) to recommend their fund to friends or colleagues.
