Should you require medical treatment that public system does not supply, how would you fund this?
This pays the cost of treatment for non-acute health issues through the private sector, where the public system may put you on a waiting list, or just not cover at all. It allows you access to high quality hospital & surgical services, plus certain specialist & diagnostic treatment. Some companies even offer benefits for GP visits, dental & optical cover, depending on your preference.
Common benefits of health insurance policies are:
- Surgical Hospitalisation e.g. General surgery, surgeons/anaesthetists fees, operating theatre fees
- Non-surgical Hospitalisation e.g. hospital costs, specialists/diagnostics whilst in hospital
- Major Diagnostics e.g. MRI scans, CT scans, Laparoscopy, Colonoscopy, Gastroscopy
