Can I still use Medicare if I have private health insurance?
Yes, you can still access the public hospital system (Medicare) even if you have private health insurance. Using Medicare is at no cost to you as the patient. If you opt to use your private health insurance in a public hospital as a private patient however, there may be out of pocket expenses.
