As a parent my worst thought would be my child suffering a major medical issue. If this did occur I would want to be able to access the best treatment no matter what the cost or who provides it, and I would want to be able to be by their side the whole time.
While private health insurance goes some way to meeting a lot of the medical costs, it falls short on providing complete cover due to the medical expense gaps, possibly not covering alternative treatment or rehabilitation expenses, and certainly does not provide anything for any time off work.
How would you cope?
If you are a parent we would encourage you to consider Child Cover as part of your family protection package – speak to your adviser on 03 5559 7111.
If you’re not sure who to contact, ask to speak with me.
