I get asked this question regularly, we live in a country that has a functioning public health system, why pay for health insurance? Today I’ll discuss one reason – Not having to wait.
Elective surgery is surgery that is not life threatening, a good example of this is a Hernia or a hip replacement, but heart surgery could be considered elective in some cases. Please watch this video to see the benefits of health insurance around elective surgery. You could be sitting on the wait list for years in a situation like this.
When my son was young he regularly suffered from ear infections, after a few bad episodes our GP referred us to an ENT specialist, we were able to get in the next day to see the specialist, who boooked him in the following week to get grommets. It meant that he suffered less and we could choose when we wanted to get it done. We have friends that went through the public system and the wait was 2 months to see a specialist and then another 3 months before they had the grommets inserted. Their child had 3 more ear infections while waiting to get seen.
