Thanks for sharing your experiences!

The only thing that sounds significant to me is the free choice of specialists. Can I throw money at it ad-hoc?

The rest of the benefits sound like they are more a convenience thing that can be solved by paying a one-time sum for the wanted benefit instead of the monthly premiums. Am I wrong?
Yes, you can throw money at it ad-hoc, and no, you’re not wrong. Since I haven’t seen it mentioned: Higher insurance status will actually increase your risk of getting unneccessary surgery. This has been well documented, not only for hysterectomies, which seem to have gone out of fashion anyway.
