BUPA: Reverse your new rip-off policy changes exploiting vulnerable patients

This petition made change with 87,384 supporters!


I’m an emergency department doctor and after BUPA’s new policy changes I am terrified for my patients. BUPA, one of Australia’s largest and most popular health insurance companies is trying to quietly rip off consumers while they cut cover for so many people, including pregnant women.

One of my patients sat at my desk and wept as she realised that her health insurance was no longer going to cover costs for important procedures -- BUPA has ripped the rug out from under consumers all for more profit even though they made over AUD $1.43 Billion in 2017!

BUPA wants to “American-ise” our Australian health care by raising costs for patients and reducing cover for important procedures. Under the new policies, patients will be forced to go to health care providers that BUPA chooses if they want the same rebate, taking the choice away from consumers.

We have to take a stand and stop ‘big insurance’ companies such as BUPA doing this. Otherwise, there's a good chance other insurance companies will follow suit. Help the vulnerable in financial jeopardy from these junk policies.

Please sign the petition asking BUPA to reverse these new exploitative policies -- and to stop big insurance companies hitting the most vulnerable patients. Patients over profit.
