Health insurance explained
Private health insurance is available for those who wish to cover the costs of becoming a private patient. Private patients have more control in choosing their treating doctor in hospital and in some instances can reduce their waiting time for elective surgery by having treatment in a private hospital. Private health insurance also offers cover for some or all of the costs of other services not covered by Medicare, such as ambulance transport, dental, optical appliances, physiotherapy, pharmaceutical (non PBS) and a wide range of other services.
