Health Insurance is private health care that helps to cover your medical expenses. By paying a monthly or annual premium to your health insurer you are entitled to certain levels of cover for different medical and surgical costs. Private health insurance provides cover for items not included in Medicare, the government funded, public health system that provides many health requirements for Australians. Private health insurance also opens up the opportunity to select the provider, hospital and timing that you would prefer, generally giving you much greater control over your health care.
Health insurance consists of two primary types, hospital cover and extras cover.
- Hospital Cover helps to cover the costs of your hospital stay, theatre fees and in-hospital visits with your doctor.
- Extras Cover helps to cover the costs of physiotherapy, optical, dental and chiropractic treatment. Some Extras policies cover alternative treatments such as chinese medicine, or other preventative items such as gym memberships.
The level of cover you choose will determine the amount of money you can claim for any incident, procedure or appointment. Different health insurers will offer very different levels of cover which an insurance broker can help you to navigate.
Health insurance can vary greatly in cost. This generally depends on:
- the insurer you choose
- the level of cover you select
- whether you combine hospital and extras cover
- the excess you opt to pay
- whether you pay monthly or annually
