What is Indexation in insurance?

Indexation is a complex-sounding term that is used to describe a relatively simple concept in the world of insurance. Here we’ll break down exactly how it can benefit you.

In a nutshell, indexation refers to a benefit payment that increases in proportion to the cost of living.

If the cost of living increases by 5% in a given year, an indexed insurance benefit will also increase by 5% so that you, or the listed beneficiary, – don’t lose out on purchasing power when the cost of living increases. Inflation Protection automatically increases your Life Insurance cover amount by 5% every year, or by the Consumer Price Index -whichever is greater.

Are you paying too much for Health Insurance?

Is your Health Insurance not giving you enough?

Plenty of Australians (just shy of 50%) have private health insurance hospital cover, while more than 55% have extras cover. Each year the federal government approves health insurance premium prices rises fund by fund and this is becoming more and more common as claims go through.

The overall increase on April 1 this year was 3.95% – the lowest in 17 years, but a substantial increase nonetheless. For the consumer, it’s worth keeping in mind that an average figure masks a wide range of individual changes. This makes it more important to review your position each year and ensure you are getting value for money.
