A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that Australians aged +14 with private health insurance have generally positive attitudes towards the industry. Some 71.3% of private health insurance fund members agree with the statement that "it gives me peace of mind", while 74.3% agree that "It’s knowing that you’ll cover the cost of big medical expenses" and 60.7% say "It’s essential to have". In addition to these major positive attitudes, there are some areas of concerns: 43.9% agree that "It is difficult to understand what you are covered for" and 23.3% agree that "I want the cheapest and don’t care provider". Meanwhile, millennials are well above average in agreeing to issues that relate to the cost of private health insurance.
