NIB Insurance Managing Director Mark Fitzgibbon must resign

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


On July 23 2019 NIB Insurance Managing Director Mark Fitzgibbon "called on the Australian Government to abolish Medicare and make private health insurance compulsory" according to the Australian Financial Review. We are calling on Mark Fitzgibbon to resign immediately.

All the evidence shows that private health insurance is indefensible as to both equity and efficiency. Just look at the health disaster in the US. It is a wreck. Medicare was created by the Whitlam Government because of the abject failure of private health insurance or, as it was then called, voluntary health insurance. Fifty years later private health insurance is even more of a mess.

For these reasons NIB customers have been cancelling their insurance with NIB and have been told that abolishing medicare is not NIB policy it is merely Fitzgibbon's personal opinion. If that is true then he must resign immediately. Please sign and help us all protect Medicare.
