The Benefits Of Private Health Insurance
So you eat the right foods, live an active lifestyle and avoid taking risks that might affect your health. But even if you have no family or personal history of serious illness you cannot be sure that nothing will go wrong in the future. Sometimes you are simply in the firing line for ill-health.
People who have private health insurance have the peace of mind that comes with knowing they are covered for the best available medical treatments when and if they become necessary.
Private health insurance provides value to its members as it:
- Gives you the option of being treated by your own doctor
- Means shorter waiting times for elective surgery
- Allows you more control over when and where to be treated
- Helps with services not covered by Medicare such as chiropractic, dental, physiotherapy, optical, dietary advice and some alternative therapies.
