Since private insurance takes on customers based on their health, it is generally cheaper than public, especially if you sign-up early, while you’re younger and healthier. Once signed up, your premium will not increase because you become older.
Most doctors reserve appointments for private health insurance holders, which makes it easier for you to access healthcare in your area, especially in big cities. In addition to that, you generally get better coverage compared to public insurance, for example in terms of dental and vision care.
If you make no claims during a calendar year, you will receive a payout the following year. The payout increases every consecutive year without claim.
The price is based on your age when you sign-up. It then only increases when overall healthcare costs go up – historically about 2% per year for public and private insurance alike.
