World First – Australian health insurance cards can now be added to Apple Wallet
Customers of major Australian health insurers can now add their membership card to an Apple Wallet and use it to file a claim with no contact. It appears to be a world first and just goes to show the progress and innovation there is in payments and in particular, in Australia. Medibank, Bupa, nib, and GU Health are all facilitating the service.
Australians are certainly world leaders in the use of the Apple wallet. Is this signalling the death of the wallet?
