Health / Medical Insurance
Do you need medical insurance in New Zealand?
As a resident of New Zealand, you can rely on the public health system for emergency care and treatment for many serious conditions. Relying on the public health system though, can have its disadvantages. Using the public health system might mean you wait longer for treatment, don’t get to choose your specialist, and if your condition is not related to an accident, you won’t be able to rely on the ACC (Accident Compensation Corporation) to pay for treatment.
Accessing treatment through private medical insurance gives you generally more control over when and where you’re treated, the surgeon who treats you, and helps you pay towards the cost of your treatment – which otherwise might be unaffordable or may significantly impact the lifestyle you’re used to.
I can help you work through your choices and help you select a suitable private medical insurance cover solution for you and/or your loved ones.
Over many years of helping clients obtain private medical insurance cover, in my experience and opinion, I have found a good Hospital insurance cover may be a more affordable solution as opposed to a comprehensive Hospital and GP cover.
Please call me for more information or to have a chat should you need some guidance in this area.
