Elly,
You might want to check with your private health insurer. Some of them allow you to suspend your cover for up to two years whilst overseas. That way your don't lose your points and history.

Hi Elly & Mick,

Be prepared for this list to increase by about 90% (believe me) lol.

Tom, I made some enquiries quite a while ago. If you're gone less than a year you can suspend it. More than a year, if you can show you've been out of the country you can go back at your old loading level. I'm thinking we'll suspend to begin with. I'll check again before we do anything - things might have changed.

Heth, no sooner had I posted this entry and we were thinking of other things. I know it's only going to get worse!

Cheers,
Elly
