Compare, the market is paying fine for allegedly deceptive health insurance canvassing.
Following the publication of a complaint of violation by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, Compare The Market Pty Ltd (Compare The Market) has fined USD 10,200 in respect of recent advertisements for the Compare the Market health insurance company's settlement services. Compare The Market in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria circulated a mailbox brochure between March 17 and May 19, 2014 in which it claimed: "We now compare more health insurance companies than any other website in Australia" and "Compare more health insurance companies than anywhere else".
The Compare The Market also made the same or similar presentations in other mediums, such as its website, corporate banners, leaflets, TV commercials and a black and white advertisement in its cafeteria. "Many Australians are privately insured and deceptive claims could involve a significant number of users who are considering changing or registering with a health insurance company and can depend on these claims," said ACCC Commissioner Sarah Court.
"Growing problems for shoppers in the on-line space, particularly in comparative web sites, are a key focus of the ACCC as it is crucial that shoppers are able to make educated buying decisions," Ms Court said. As a rule, comparative sites compare only a small sample of health insurance products from a number of different health insurance companies.
By way of contrast, the Ombudsman's website on Health Care allows users to compare current health insurance coverage across all Australian health insurers. If the ACCC has good reason to believe that a individual has violated certain ACL regulations, the ACCC may file a violation report. Paying a fine specified in an injury report is not an acknowledgement of a violation of the ACL.
Compare The Market's published request for damages is available in the official registry of the ACCC.
