If you're in Australia and eligible for Medicare, given what you've told us, private health insurance isn't good value for you at present. For the next 7 or so years, if you don't have any health issues where you want/need to get treatment in a private hospital rather than in the public system, you will pay far more in premiums than you could possibly get back. Look at it again just before you turn 30 after which you will become liable for higher premiums if you ever take out private health insurance i.e. an extra 2% for every year you're not covered after age 30.
You are wrong. Check into the national healthcare systems of western Europe and you will discover that the rich and famous all have private health insurance. In the USA, this private insurance extends into a lot of the middle class. This private insurance provides a higher quality of healthcare than the socialist healthcare systems.
No-one knows when they will become ill or be involved in an accident. Here in the U.K. we have the National Health Service and don't have to pay but if we didn't have that we'd be in a fine mess if we didn't buy health insurance because the costs of any kind of treatment would be astronomical if we actually did need it one day. People here can pay for private health care if they choose and this will, sometimes, fast tract them if they need an operation or treatment of some kind and might get them a private ward but the majority of us don't or cannot do that.
Within the ACA is a mandate for all citizens to have health insurance. There is a penalty (i.e. tax) that is determined on your tax return, if you do not have health insurance for the entire year. However, there are some exceptions to this penalty (e.g. low income). If you did not have health insurance for any of the years that the ACA has been in effect for and none of the exceptions apply to you, you can be penalized by the IRS. Firstly, the IRS would determine the amount of the health insurance penalty for each year. Then, the IRS would charge interest and potentially late payment penalties on those amounts. Also, the tax return has a box that must be checked if you had health insurance all year. If you checked that box and did NOT have health insurance all year, that could be considered tax fraud. If it was a simple mistake, you might be fine, since fraud must be intentional.
Obamacare is neither healthcare insurance nor "mostly about Medicare". It provides for everyone to be able to buy health insurance, mostly from private providers, and to have a specific number of conditions and needs covered. It also provided for an expansion of Medicaid benefits for low-income people.
Nobody manages health care. It's all done privately and there is no managed system that provides it. Thanks to Obama, it is now compulsory to buy insurance, but that's still all run by private companies and it's up to individuals to decide what insurance to buy. Mostly, employers provide insurance as an employment perk, so people tend not to deal with insurers directly, but ultimately it's up to individuals what they do. The government certainly doesn't manage anything, except that it pays for the poor and old who qualify for Medicare or Medicaid.

Travel health insurance in Europe that does not require European Health Insurance Card I was looking for a new travel insurance policy recently for travel within Europe and what I was never aware of is that many insurance policies require you to have an European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for the cover to be valid. I have looked at quite a few policies and this does appear to be the case. Two questions:Is is mandatory to carry an EHIC to be admitted to a hospital? The wording in policies seems to be confusing as they say excess will be waived in case an EHIC is used. But if I'm willing to pay the excess amount, am I still covered otherwise?Are there travel insurance policies that do NOT require an EHIC to be carried for the policy to be valid? (Yes I know an EHIC is free to apply for but I wanted to get a travel insurance that would work without it, just in case I am not carrying / don't have an EHIC on me.)

What extra benefits are there in getting travel insurance if I have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)? I've got a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) and only plan to travel around the EU for the foreseeable future. I read another answer that quite nicely covered the details of what the EHIC covers, but I'd like to know if there's any reason to pay for additional travel insurance. If the EHIC gives me equal medical care as I would get in England, what's the point of paying more? Does travel insurance usually provide extra cover that an EHIC won't?
