Private vs public health
Can the public health system support everyone or should Private cover be compulsory? Tony McManus fleshed out the pros and cons of the two systems with Andrew Walton from HBF, 6PR's Steve Collins and a whole a lot of callers.
6PR producer Steve Collins joined Tony McManus to discuss the reasons why he feels that private health insurance is a waste of time.
$2 a day X 365 days=$730 a year. Add to this the Medicare you have to pay and it is not cheap. You have to pay Medicare regardless. I have always wondered why it is illegal to be insured for your car, house etc twice, but you can insure yourself under 2 health systems. The private health companies have their qualifying periods and have it all worked out and it really isn't worth it if you don't have any health problems or very few. You are never covered for the whole amount anyway. I have had a couple of things done in the public health system-free of charge and the waiting periods were only a couple of months and are pretty happy. I have also had 2 children under the public health system and a friend of mine had to pay $5000 for the same treatment because she went private-go figure!Chick of Perth Thursday 15 March, 2012 - 4:57 PM
Oh, give me strength!
Plan your operations or procedures if you've private health insurance.
However, if in pain and distress, you'll end up in a public hospital.
Well, doesn't god, health insurance and governments work in mysterious and manipulative ways?
This has happened to me in a public hospital while having declared my private health insurance statis.
The nurses...all contracted.
The doctors...the "specialists"...all too busy, too overworked.
"The Specialist", by the name of F Abdul Aziz, stay clear of: actually, I'd like to hear from those who have had a colonscopy performed by this creature and his little minions at Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital.
Near clapped eye on this person,may he rot in hell and his nasty female hellions.Dellas Thursday 15 March, 2012 - 2:47 PM
