Description:
The Minister for Health and Children has stated that she considers that a broad review of prescribed minimum benefits in the regulated health insurance system is desirable. She has asked the Health Insurance Authority to consult in relation to minimum benefits to be provided by insurers. This paper contains a brief background discussion on minimum benefits and relevant aspects of the health insurance system. A summary description of the current Minimum Benefit Regulations is followed by an outline of the issues that need to be considered in the consultation. It is Government policy that a regulatory impact analysis should be undertaken with regard to most primary and significant secondary legislation which is to be implemented. This analysis shall have regard to the principles of Necessity, Effectiveness, Proportionality, Transparency, Accountability and Consistency. The Authority would welcome submissions that have regard to these principles. In turn, the Authority’s advice to the Minister will have appropriate regard to the principles.
