When a person needs hospital care, it is provided, free of charge through the Medicare system; however, while emergency treatment is given without delay, recipients of the Public system are not in complete control of their care. When you are a public patient, you are not offered as many options of choosing the doctor in charge of your care and you often have a more limited choice of hospitals in your area. Private Hospital cover allows you a broader range of doctor and hospitals.
