Thanks for looking mate.
How about I send you a list of everything I have and you can tick it off ! And vice versa? LOL

Every time you post a pic of that pub Coasty I want to go there more - especially in this weather


On the private health thing - when I busted my elbow and needed to have the radial head replaced, I had only been in private health care for around 5 years (as a family package including kids - lowest cover)

When I did the sums at the end of it all the whole lot could have ended up costing me $35,000.00, the implant alone is costs $8000!!!

The benefits I had were:

Almost immediate attention from private emergency department including a specialist, Surgery within 12 hours of consultation, overnight in a single room, sponge bath from a lovely nurse, 3 more consultations with surgeon, all X-rays and MRI were walk in walk out - no sitting in waiting rooms for hours, full rehab with OT and Phyisio as well, all to suit my work and need to keep running a business.

In the end I worked out that I had paid around $2500 for private health cover over six years - but had also claimed eye tests and glasses rebates over time and quarterly dentist visits for what could possibly cost the "free" system over $40K

I find it interesting that people have full insurance on a car, but not on themselves, although, the government won't fix your car for you if its broken



Oh - and I need a red Cook Brothers seat clamp - willing to swap for titanium elbow replacement

I'm looking for an oceanfront home rent free. Have a few BMX things to trade. Just putting it out there...

The health insurance thing is a debate like clips v flats. As we grow older it becomes a bit more important as the elective surgery type things (e.g. hip replacement) mean without insurance or the ability to pay, you can be on the list for years and in the interim your quality of life can be impacted. You can always head over to Thailand and pump yourself up with so many steroids that your body becomes a robot and no need for repairs.

Spare a thought for me about to run the health insurance gauntlet over here.

Hope you are on the improve Brian, or at least getting better health care.

Yeah on Health Insurance - I've been a Medibank Private member for 25 years. Although it's not cheap, the assistance we have received through having 4 kids (and all the hospital visits that come with raising kids) as well as the many health issues we have had with Julies back injury have absolutely made it worthwhile.

The State Government hospital systems have really been hit by the reduction in GST revenue with the downturn in the economy over the last few years. Even though the Mining Tax revenue will replace some of that, with an aging (and fattening) population, hospitals will continue to be under massive pressure. The Libs record on health funding is no better than Labour so that won't change anything. Medical costs rise phenomenally every year due to new advances in treatments.

So all in all looking forward to at least another 25 years of health insurance!!!
