    Default How much is your private health cover...

    And what cover do you have?

    Want to know if we can get our cover elsewhere. We are covered through an exclusive non-profit insurer but premium still went up $11.60 fortnight this month. And we only have essential extras and top hospital cover.

    Family, top $182/fortnight.

    Ours went up quite a bit too. It was $100 less than this in 2003.

    $55 a week through Bupa - hospital (not top cover) and selected extras (dental/optical/physio/occupational therapy only).

    It was $50 before the recent increase.

    I'm less than thrilled with it.

    If one was to get rid of obstetrics, do they still have gyno on there?

    Top hospital family with NIB, it's just under $180 a fortnight. We have a low excess too which is great and have lots of extras.
