Many Australians, disgusted with long queues at

hospitals and wanting to choose their own specialists

for elective surgery, spend hundreds or thousands of

dollars extra each year to purchase private health cover. Most of

these Australians don’t subscribe to or read Informed Voice. The

vast majority of our readers, according to a survey conducted in

2003, don’t use the services of conventional medical practitioners

except in the case of emergencies and, for emergency use, private

health cover makes little or no difference.
