Can someone please explain health insurance to me? I've never in my life had health insurance!
I'm looking on health insurers websites but their talking like I should know what a benefit is etc I know I'm looking for extras cover for dental and the like, I do have a HCC but honestly the public health system is shocking and no medicare rebates for dental care outside the public dentists is crazy (Unless you wait 5+ months on an emergency wait list....) :thumbdown: with 2 kids, 1 with SN and my own dental issues we really can't afford to be so out of pocket for this kinda stuff!

It's pretty straight forward pretty much all the health funds do all the same thing just the amounts that they pay back and the amouth that you can spend per year before you get nothing back changes pretty much.
Just a heads up though they won't cover for pre-exisiting illnesses so not sure what SN you little one has but if its something that your child needs physio for or special appointments they won't cover it. does that make sense?
