Default Private hospitals

My older relatives always go for public (restructured) hospitals whenever they need to be warded, some as subsidised patients and some as private patients.

Most of them have hospitalisation insurance. But they still choose SGH, TTSH and the like.

They say that once you go for private, the costs may balloon out of control and a lifetime of savings may be wiped out (even with insurance coverage).

Is it true?

I've never been hospitalised, but as I'm getting older, I need to prepare to decide between public and private healthcare one day.
