Reporting requirements for private health insurers
Private health insurers are required, under the Financial Sector (Collection of Data) Act 2001 and its reporting standard, to provide data to APRA. The data is defined in the set of reporting forms and instructions.
Licensing, application and reporting forms
APRA is currently updating the forms and guidance required under the newly enacted legislative framework for the prudential supervision of the private health industry. You can access:
Reporting guidance and resources
Reporting periods and due dates
Quarterly forms - within 28 calendar days after the end of the reporting period
Annual forms - by 30 September each year.
If the due date falls on a day other than a usual business day, a private health insurer is nonetheless requried to submit the information required no later than the due date.
Annual audit requirements
By 30 September each year, a private health insurer must give to APRA an auditor’s report relating to:
- 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
- if the private health insurer provides an amended quarterly return to replace a return referred to in paragraph (a) — the amended quarterly return.
