Health Insurance helps to cover the cost of your medical and surgical expenses. It can give you:
- Faster access to treatment by avoiding public hospital waiting lists.
- Less financial stress by reducing your medical costs and time off work.
- More choice over when and where you receive treatment for qualifying medical conditions.
Public vs Private Health Care
New Zealand has a public healthcare system that will look after your acute needs and A.C.C. will cover you for accidental injury.
With health insurance, you can see a specialist in the private healthcare system quicker than waiting to move up the list. This can save time and money, reduce ongoing pain and uncertainty, and increase the chance your treatment is successful by allowing you to be diagnosed and treated faster.
Ultimately, health insurance helps by giving you access to the medical treatment you need, when you need it.
If you have Health Insurance, we can review it to make sure it suits your budget, lifestyle and needs.
