Health Insurance is an area that is possibly overlooked at times in favour of Life and Income Protection Insurance. Health Insurances main benefit is providing funds to pay for elective surgery procedures that can (without it) result in long delays as a result of waiting in the public health system. You can choose when, where, how and by whom you get treated, in consultation with your doctor. Examples of procedures/operations can range from a Cataract Removal ($3,800 – $4,800) to a Heart Bypass ($32,000 – $45,000).
I recently had to have a Stent and was pleased to have Tower Health Insurance meet the costs of this which, all up, totaled around $17,000. This certainly made the procedure financially painless and I found Tower helpful and easy to deal with.
