    Default Who's got private health? Wdyt of the 6.2% approved increase?

    Of course, it's all the previous government's fault

    I think it stinks! The amount you pay for what little you get (outside of being in hospital) is minimum, the limits for extras are paltry and restrictive if not with 'members first providers'. I don't know how to make it better but it hurts to pay so much. Both governments are guilty, no government that I am aware of have said no to the funds proposed increases in previous years.

    Think I might ditch mine really or switch to just extras cover for optical and dental.

    I'm well and healthy and the public health system would quickly and easily treat any medical emergencies such as appendicitis, car crash, broken leg etc.
