This course is an update of the original Private Health Insurance course that was launched in July 2007.
With the support of the Private Health Insurance Administration Council (PHIAC), the Institute of Actuaries of Australia developed the online Private Health Insurance CPD Education Course in 2007. The Course will equip actuaries and their technical staff with the necessary knowledge and skills to understand the specific conduct and operations of private health insurance in Australia .
The course has been written in a way that also makes it valuable for other health insurance practitioners including financial staff, general management and Board members.
To obtain a certificate of completion for this course, you will be required to complete a final assessment task. It is expected that your answers will show understanding and application of the material covered. Please do not simply “cut and paste” from the course materials or readings.
Local health insurance actuaries are willing to hold question and answer sessions on the course if there is sufficient interest. Please contact the Institute of Actuaries of Australia if you would be interested in attending such a session.
The 2010 update to the Private Health Insurance course incorporates changes to legislation, professional standards, industry activity and health reform since the original course was launched in July 2007.
