Capital Adequacy

Prudential Standards (1)
In Force
In effect from 26 June 2015
The purpose of this Prudential Standard is to ensure, as far as practicable, that there are sufficient assets in a health benefits fund conducted by a private health insurer to provide adequate capital for the conduct of the health benefits fund in accordance with the Act and in the interests of the policy holders of the fund. This Prudential Standard requires the private health insurer to demonstrate that the assets of its health benefits fund will be able to meet the liabilities of the fund after a 12 month period, allowing for the future business plans of the fund and adverse circumstances.
