The federal government says its changes to private health insurance announced today will lower premiums for everyone.

“We’ll be offering a discount of up to 10 per cent for people under 30,” Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt told FIVEaa on Friday.

“They’ll keep that right through until they’re 40. It’s about getting young people in, which helps them… and secondly that actually reduces pressure on the whole of private health insurance because they lower the average costs.

“In addition to that we’re increasing mental health coverage and saving a billion dollars by paying less for prostheses… that in turn will go right through to reducing the pressure on premiums for everybody who has private health insurance.”
