Isabella can recall two pivotal moments in her life when her private health insurance has been instrumental. At just 16 years of age, she had reconstructive surgery on both of her knees to prevent them from constantly dislocating and causing her great levels of pain. Thankfully, her private cover was able to provide both financial assistance and the option to skip the standard waiting time attached to these procedures.
The other moment that has stuck with Isabella, was when her mother had a relapse reaction to her anti-depressant medication. If she didn’t have private health insurance, Isabella is adamant that her mother would not have received the necessary support, rehabilitation and guidance she desperately needed. Both of these events have cemented the value of private health insurance in Isabella’s mind, and she’s certain that she’ll continue to have it for the rest of her life.
