Is it worth getting private health insurance for a young healthy family?
Absolutely. Insurance isn't just about healthcare for the ill - what if the family has an accident and ends up hospitalized/]? My husband had a routine surgery and was in the hospital about 3 hours and the bill for that alone was over $4000, not including the surgeon.
A simple car accident where everyone will fine but has to be hospitalized for a day or two can break a family's finances overnight.
Thanks for the reply. I've just realized healthcare is different in the aUS. I am in Australia so emergency care is free as are quite a lot of things. Waiting times can ce quite long . I guess better be safe than sorry.
