Annual audit requirements

By 30 September each year, a private health insurer must give to APRA an auditor’s report relating to:

  • a) the information provided by the private health insurer under this Reporting Standard for each quarter in the year ending 30 June of that year; or
  • b) if the private health insurer provides an amended quarterly return to replace a return referred to in paragraph (a) — the amended quarterly return.
