Health Insurance

Could you afford to pay for private hospital treatment without Health Insurance?

Health insurance covers the cost of private hospital treatment, which can help avoid public waiting lists. It allows you to have treatment where and when you need it in consultation with your GP. Having health insurance means you can have a greater choice of health service providers offering the service, treatment or procedure that you need.

Why should I consider it?

Your health is one of your biggest assets. Without you, your quality of life can be greatly affected. Health insurance can help lessen the financial strain on your lifestyle if you choose to have private treatment. It can also cut out the waiting time for treatment, which can reduce stress and let you focus on getting better.

What about ACC?

ACC provides treatment and/or rehabilitation services to people who suffer an injury only as a result of an accident.

If you are being covered by ACC for a accident then your Health Insurance does not cover the cost of any treatment if ACC is responsible. However, if ACC declines your claim it can be used.

Health insurance covers significant medical expenses minus any excess. Cancer cover, surgery and hospital charges to name a few. Limits of cover may vary between each insurer and Plan you have in place.
