The Minister for Health has made the Private Health Insurance (Risk Equalisation Levy) Rules 2017 (the Rules), to replace the Private Health Insurance (Risk Equalisation Levy) Rules 2007.

All legislative instruments are subject to the sunsetting provisions in the Legislation Act 2003. Sunsetting provisions in legislation provide that a law is repealed (sunset) after a specific date unless further legislative action has been taken to extend the law. The sunsetting process ensures that legislative instruments are kept up to date and only remain in force while they are fit for purpose, necessary and relevant.

The Department undertook an internal review of the Rules and as a result no administrative changes were made to the Rules. The Rules were published on the Federal Register of Legislation on 5 May 2017, and the Rules come into effect on 20 May 2017.
