During my professional wakeboarding career to date, I’ve ruptured two discs in my lower back, broken my leg, torn ligaments in both my ankles and torn my butt… don’t ask!
Private Health Insurance has allowed me to gain the best medical treatment to bounce back strong and fast.
It allows me to seek professional advice from multiple doctors and saves me from lengthy waiting lists – I had a mate break his nose and without private health insurance he had to wait an entire week just to have his nose straightened out, which caused way more damage!
I’m very optimistic but I would be extremely naive not to carry private health insurance.
I recently turned 25 so that means I’m off my family’s insurance cover. Without a single lapse day, I bought my own cover.
To me, it’s worth every cent to know I have the best medical care available. It’s not just athletes who should invest in cover, everyone should get on to it!
