New research reveals that Australians are more concerned with insuring their vehicles than protecting their personal health, well-being and finances.

Pureprofile surveyed 1,000 people, analysing their attitudes towards insurance coverage. The study found 72% of Aussies have comprehensive car insurance and 62% have home and contents insurance.

Just 55% have private health insurance, 22% have life insurance and only 12% have income protection.

One third have low or no insurance and one in seven adults (14%) don't have any insurance at all.

Australia's private health insurance market is dominated by two major brands, Bupa (26%) and Medibank Private (24%). Other companies including HCF (16%) and nib (13%) have smaller member numbers.
