While progress in modern medicine has reduced the likelihood of death after a serious illness, survivors are faced with the financial impact of additional medical costs and lost income during their recover.
Medical Insurance gives you options. Our public health system only provides immediate care in an emergency. For other health problems, even serious ones like a heart condition, you could face waiting lists.
Waiting may mean;
- Your condition could get worse
- You may suffer pain and discomfort
- You may not be able to work
Private Medical Insurance can:
- pay for the cost of major hospital and surgical procedures
- allow you to receive the treatment as soon as it is required, so you can plan it around your family schedule
- mean you avoid public health waiting lists, having to wait while your illness gets worse, and the financial consequences if you are off work and waiting for treatment.
- give you the option of seeking treatment with your preferred provider
- cover the costs of private hospital surgical treatment, non-surgical treatment and specialist fees and tests with hospitalisation
