Does HIF have to provide the Private Health Information Statement (PHIS)?
Yes, we sure do. Private Health Insurers are required to provide a Private Health Information Statement (PHIS):
- to newly insured people;
- annually to currently insured persons on a domestic policy;
- as soon as possible after the private health information statement that applies to your policy changes;
- when a change is made that might be detrimental to an insured person;
- upon request
Important please note:
Members who hold an overseas policy will not receive a Private Health Information Statement (PHIS). If you’d like to request information about your policy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 1300 134 060 and we’ll be happy to help.
