I use a mix of private and public. When my children need to go to hospital urgently, we go to the public children's hospital. When my baby son had surgery, we did it at a private hospital. When he needed an exploratory procedure we did it at public. I had my babies privately. For me it is worth having PHI and I'm happy to pass on some of the benefit of that to the public hospitals when I need to use them. For you, maybe it's not worth it. I'm not saying everyone should have PHI, all I'm saying is that if you do have it, let it be used towards providing better healthcare for everyone. After all, we go to hospital for medical treatment. It's not a hotel.
