We've focused recently on the power of a corporate health insurance plan in attracting, selecting and ultimately hiring key talent.

In many ways, a company is only as good as its employees, so being able to recruit the best people in a competitive market is a great advantage for a business of any size.

Not every employee is a new hire, however, and focusing on the substantial benefits in the recruitment stage is important, though not the entire picture.

As you look into purchasing health insurance in Australia, you'll notice that not everything is immediately covered. While hospital cover is one of the basic parts of a standard policy, there are extras to think about - such as eye care, physiotherapy and dentistry.

Not everyone understands what a corporate health plan is for - particularly business owners. While some are reaping the rewards of a carefully crafted policy, others have either inherited one from a previous director or simply avoided engaging with the idea altogether.

From Darwin to Melbourne and Brisbane to Perth, hundreds of new businesses open their doors every month. Some will grow slowly, taking on employees over the course of a year or so; others will expand rapidly with a bold recruitment strategy.

There's no shortage of opinion that now is a good time to be a startup in Australia, though these new enterprises have a wealth of important decisions to make. Not least of all is how they will protect the health and wellbeing of their employees, clients and members.

If you currently have a private health insurance policy, you'll know the cost of protecting yourself from harm with a high level of cover.

However, do you know how competitively priced your policy is compared to those offered by other providers?

Experts say that comparing health insurance can save the average consumer around $1,500 per year - and due to a recently anticipated 6 per cent cost rise, now could be the perfect time to make some enquiries.

Whether you're the head of an enormous conglomerate with multiple interests, or a small-business owner in charge of a handful of highly trained individuals, making sure your employees' health and wellbeing is secure can be absolutely critical to continued success.

Finding the right corporate health insurance can be a key way to do this. There are a total of 35 health funds available in Australia, each with varying policies and levels of cover.

When planning for the future, it is pivotal to secure against the most obvious threats, as well as the not so conspicuous ones.

The same can be said when creating a personal or corporate health insurance plan. Knowing the less obvious threats is important to protect against a wide range of injuries and illnesses; however, it is the most pressing health concerns that pose a more clear and present danger.

There can be great diversity in the cost of a health insurance plan. With so many variables - coverage, location, age of consumer, etc. - it can be a complex process assessing the risk and, as a result, the cost of a health insurance policy.

It can be easy to find a skewed view on hospital care. Most opinions either come from either bad or good examples of how an individual found their level of treatment - the fact that both can occur shows that it is a imperfect way of gauging the standard of a specific facility.

If you are looking at your health insurance and the level of care you are receiving, or are likely to receive should you fall victim of illness or injury, it is important to know the hard facts.

Australia's health insurance is leading the Asia-Pacific region, and proving to be one of the better established models in the world. This is according to a columnist and Asset Management Executive Director Brian Gaynor, who in his report for the New Zealand Herald, pointed out the difference between our standard of health care and that of our trans-Tasman neighbours.

Mr Gaynor unearthed some interesting statistics on what separates the two economically developed nations - other than around 2,000 kilometres of ocean.
