A guide to choose private health insurance

A guide to choose private health insurance
by Dr Howard Lee (dentist) | November 8, 2019 | Private Health Insurance | 199 comments

This article does not constitute a financial advice. Before proceeding, you should seek an advice from an appropriately qualified financial adviser.

In Australia, Medicare covers treatments in public hospitals as well as visits to GP and optometrists. But public hospitals can be busy, and sometimes patients have to be on waitlist to be treated. Also, for general treatments such as dental or optical treatments, Medicare usually does not cover at all.

In Australia, people buy private health insurance products to have more health care options and to cover items not covered by Medicare. For example, some patients with private health insurance can be treated in private hospitals which tend to have shorter waitlist for operations. Some with private health insurance and general treatment cover (often called ancillary or extra cover) can get partly or fully covered for dental treatments in private practices or in hospitals.

In this guide, I would like to introduce two information sources you can utilise:

https://www.privatehealth.gov.au/

https://www.productreview.com.au/c/health-insurance

Banner

1) https://www.privatehealth.gov.au/

This government website helps you to choose right product for you based on your needs, and will also display premiums. If you wish, the website will email you the detailed report about products.

2) https://www.productreview.com.au/c/health-insurance

This website has reviews about services (like whether they will cover or not, and how prompt their phone and claim services are) submitted by users.

There are other health insurance comparison websites but they require your personal details like address, phone number and email address which may cause privacy concerns, they receive commissions so they may not recommend products if they do not receive commissions from some private health insurance companies, and they may keep contacting you to change health insurance which can be annoying sometimes.

At Caringbah Dental Care, we are a preferred provider for Westfund, CBHS and NIB.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

  22. When you comment on a post after skimming it or — worse — not reading it at all, you greatly increase the chances you’ll say something silly.
    A long-winded blog comment, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.

  23. Some people like the sound of their own voices. Ask them what music they like, and they’ll take you on a 12-minute journey into the minutia of John Mayer’s latest album.
    One-sided conversations on a date are not much fun and neither are blog comments that last forever and a day.

  24. Many great comments are on the longer side, but be careful not to confuse quantity with quality.
    A 500-word comment isn’t better than a 100-word comment. It’s usually just five times longer.
    It’s okay to summarize, but your comment needs to be more than the CliffsNotes version of the post you just read.
