Our daughter, Ava, was diagnosed with middle ear deafness when she was three years old.
Thankfully, the doctors were confident that with surgery Ava would gain at least 90% hearing in both ears.
If it wasn’t for us having Private Health Cover, Ava would have waited up to three years to have the surgery to correct this. I can’t imagine the negative impact this wait would have had on her development, schooling, her speech & her social skills.
Using our Private Health Insurance, Ava’s operation was booked in and performed within seven days, giving her full hearing in both ears.
To see the look on our little girl’s face when she woke from the operation and heard our voices for the first time is something Adam and I will treasure forever.
