My insurance adviser received an e-mail from a patient.
She went to a private surgeon, who did a stent for her. He wanted to do a second stent, but she said she has could not afford it. She had just switched to a private insurer, which does not cover an early claim.
When she went to a restructured hospital, she was told that the stent was not necessary, as the extent of her blockage was not severe, and was quite common.
There are patients who have received different advice from the the medical profession. It is useful to have a second opinion before embarking on a major or expensive surgery.
