PRIVATE HEALTH CARE OFFERS OPTIONS TO WHEN, WHERE AND HOW YOUR HEALTH ISSUES ARE TREATED
No one likes to be sick or injured but what if you could get back to life quicker? There is a vast array of health insurance options available, and we’ll help you find the one that suits you.
If crucial drugs are not funded?
Pharmac has to frequently make difficult decisions whether to fund certain drugs that are not available in New Zealand, and are often extremely expensive. Most private health insurances cover Non-pharmac drugs, giving you access to drugs that could save or pro-long your life.
Avoid long hospital waiting lists
With public hospital waiting lists growing by the day, the health system is desperately playing catch up. Some people are choosing to use their own money to pay for private surgery, as procedures that would normally have a 6 week waiting list are now having to wait over 6 months or more.
No need to use your savings for surgery
If you needed a knee or hip replacement surgery for example, this currently costs between $22,000 and $27,000. Paying for these operations with your own savings is often financially out of reach for many people. Your health insurance could pay for this surgery.
Wouldn’t it be great to get back to life quicker after an health issue?
Having the right type of health insurance for your situation can not only get you back into life quicker, but you could get access to certain drugs and procedures that are not available through the public health system.
