Prime Minister Tony Abbott says he doesn’t want to interfere with plans to increase the cost of private health insurance.

Premiums are set to rise by up to seven percent in April, more than three times the rate of inflation.

Gary Adshead spoke with Consumers’ Health Forum Australia spokesman Mark Metherell.
