Bupa has warned that a lack of competition among private hospitals was pushing up the cost of treatment and threatening to make its health insurance unaffordable.

As the cost of paying for its customers' private treatment continues to rise, it has warned that the health insurance industry faces a looming "affordability crunch" in the medium-term.
