3 fictional characters who needed family health insurance


You think you’ve got it bad? Imagine waking up after being asleep for a century, or being force-fed by an evil witch who lives in a house made of sweets in the middle of the forest. Here’s how family Health Insurance could’ve changed the lives of 3 famous fictional characters.     

1. Put Humpty Dumpty together again

We lay no judgement on the abilities of all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, but if Humpty had access to a team of surgeons, he may have been put together again.

Say the Dumpty family had taken out family health cover, this is how his story might have gone: Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, but having AAMI Health Insurance’s Premium Hospital Cover, Humpty Dumpty had access to a range of premium services like the choice of specialist and surgeon to put him together again and he made a full recovery. (Doctors advised Humpty that as an egg, he should probably avoid sitting on high structures from now on.)

2. Recover quicker – Jack and the hill accident

We all know that Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Most reports have described how, once they reached the top, Jack fell down, resulting in a broken crown (and Jill, subsequently, tumbling after). A fall like this would probably give poor little Jack more than a nasty bump on the head.

If Jack and Jill’s parents had family Health Insurance, like AAMI Health Insurance’s Everyday Hospital Cover plus Everyday Active Extras, Jack would’ve been covered for helpful services, such as:

  • Unlimited Emergency Ambulance transport for his quick, unexpected trip to the hospital
  • Cover for admission to hospital for treatment of his injuries, (like that bump to his head) under the Accidental Injury Benefit
  • Physio and Chiro for his painful lumps and bumps.

3. Treating Sleeping Beauty

Waking up can take a while for some of us, but imagine what it would be like if you’d been asleep for 100 years. Not to mention being woken up by a kiss from a strange man. Having been asleep for such a long time, Sleeping Beauty might need a helping hand to get back to her princess best.

Had Sleeping Beauty been covered by AAMI Health Insurance Premium Active Extras, she could have received 70% back on covered services, like physio to recover her standing posture.
