The campaign messages focus on the positive, and not the usual ‘unexpected disaster’ type messages so prevalent in Insurance advertising.

The suite of ads (of which we have seen two so far), helps to generate reappraisal of PHI as a category, and encourages affinity for Medibank as a preferred brand. The call to action is more subtle than some, with no deadlines or promos driving customers to purchase.
