This continues a declining trend seen each year since December 2014, when it was 65.0%. The survey also shows that 67.5% of people with private health insurance agree that ‘it gives me peace of mind’, down from 73.6% in 2014; meanwhile, some 55.4% agree that ‘it’s essential to have’, down from 65.0% in 2014. The survey is based on in-depth personal interviews conducted face-to-face with over 50,000 Australians per annum in their own homes, including over 8,000 interviews with members of private health insurance funds.
