Private Health Insurance Negotiation Framework

Private Health Insurance Negotiation Framework to assist members

Day Hospitals Australia engaged Hilton Consulting to develop a tangible engagement framework with Private Health Insurers that demonstrates the value proposition of day hospitals to the private health insurance industry and other stakeholders.  The final report was presented to the December 2018 Board of Directors meeting.  This work has already proved valuable in our discussions with Bupa and nib as previously reported to members.

A PHI Negotiation Framework for members was developed by Hilton Consulting as part of this work – click here to view this document or visit, which is intended to provide a resource to members to assist in their health fund contract negotiation and provides members with:


  • A high level summary of the review and findings of the consultancy work
  • Emphasising the thinking of Private Health Insurers
  • Outline the work Day Hospitals Australia is doing to innovatively encourage Private Health Insurers to contract with day hospitals and influence referrals to this sector
