Why Private Medical Insurance?
Many Kiwi’s assume that when needed, ACC or the public health system will sort them out. However, in many situations this isn’t the case – which is why healthcare is a major political point during election time – because thousands of everyday New Zealand residents are waiting for all sorts of medical treatments. ‘Urgent’ care may be available for acute injuries or life-threatening medical situations, but for non-urgent conditions, public health care often comes up short, with overworked or inexperienced medical providers and a lack of access to ground-breaking and expensive non-pharmac approved treatments, which is where those with Private Medical Insurance see the benefit in their private health cover.
In New Zealand, we’re fortunate to have a high standard of health care for all New Zealander’s however the demand for medical treatment continues to increase faster than the country’s ability to fund it, creating long waiting lists for many private medical treatments.
Private Medical Insurance is designed to provide the access to your choice of New Zealand’s most experienced medical professionals and revolutionary medical treatments, while avoiding lengthy waiting lists and unforeseen medical bills.
