    I haven't used extras directly on the child but I have used the extras as a result of the child ( physio, massage from breast feeding etc)

    Hi Mod-Degrassi. Keen to talk to you for the story I'm working on. In it, health economists and consumer advocates say ditching extras is the way to go if the cost of insurance is getting out of hand. My email is john.rolfe@news.com.au

    I'm a bit too scared to drop the extras. We only have basic hospital and extras but I always think of something was to happen and you needed ongoing therapy (like occupational therapy or physio) to recover that hospital only wouldn't cover it?

    The extras with my PHI are great...pay for themselves multiple times with my contact lenses, dental (especially unforseen dental emergencies which can be pricey), and physiotherapy.

    Admittedly I'm with Defence Health, as hubby is ex-Army. They are great. I used to be with The Doctors' Health Fund, which ironically was terrible.
