              (b)     the insurance must be in the form of a complying health insurance product (see Part 3-3); and

               (c)     the private health insurers who make the products available must meet certain obligations to people insured or seeking to be insured under the products (see Part 3-4).

                   Matters relating to * complying health insurance products are also dealt with in the Private Health Insurance (Complying Product) Rules, the Private Health Insurance (Prostheses) Rules and the Private Health Insurance (Accreditation) Rules. The provisions of this Chapter indicate when a particular matter is or may be dealt with in these Rules.
