I have a mental illness which has required me to have ECT frequently. I do have top health insurance cover. I do see a private specialist fortnightly and have not required to be an inpatient for over 5 years. However although my specialist I see in private practice, he does not work in a private hospital but rather is a consultant in a public hospital, this was previously not a problem because if I did need hospitalisation I would enter as a public patient at the hospital that he works at. However, now he has been told that he can only admit patients who live within that hospitals area of care, and unfortunately I don’t live in that area. I’m on a pension and am generally healthy otherwise so I cannot really afford to pay for top hospital insurance when my specialist works in a public hospital but has been told that he is not allowed to admit there, even though I have seen him since before 2006. What would you recommend?
