David aged 45, divorced with two school aged children. Went to his GP for a routine medical for his truck drivers licence and was found to have high blood pressure by his GP & sent to a cardiologist for investigations. Eight months later David started experiencing angina. An angiogram, angioplasty and eventually bypass surgery was required over a period of 18 months. Total claim cost to date has been $60,000.00.
David has a health insurance policy with a nil excess and he was able to have all of his treatment and surgery performed in a private hospital and have “peace of mind” knowing all costs would be covered and he could concentrate on getting better.
