Problems HCF Wants to Explore with HCF Catalyst

MILLENNIALS AND GenZ PERCEIVE PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE (PHI) AS EXPENSIVE AND DO NOT SEE THE VALUE IN HOLDING A HEALTH INSURANCE POLICY.

We want to package suitable and affordable insurance with things that support millennials and GenZ lifestyles and their appetite for subscription-based products and services.

Our strategic driver is to make healthcare more appealing and relevant to Australia’s young people.

PERSONAL HEALTH INSURANCE PRODUCTS CAN BE COMPLEX AND TIME CONSUMING TO NAVIGATE AND SELECT.

We want to offer a compelling personalised offering and sign-up experience to our potential customers, giving them the confidence to select the right cover for them.

Our strategic driver is to make acquiring private health insurance more understandable and accessible to everyday Australians.
