Why do I need health insurance?

As a New Zealand resident, the public healthcare system is there to help – and can be relied on for injuries related to accidents and emergencies.

But when it comes to things like specialist treatment or surgery, private healthcare can be beneficial.

Some of the common hospital treatments that young children may need can be very expensive if you need to finance them*:

  • Grommets can cost between $2,500 and $3,500
  • Adenoids and tonsil removal can cost between $4,000 and $5,500

Health insurance offers flexibility when it comes to healthcare and the peace of mind knowing that if something happens, you don’t have to worry about the financial side of things.

Private health insurance in New Zealand may include benefits like:

  • Avoiding the public waiting list
  • Choice of doctor or specialist you prefer
  • The cost of quality private care supported at agreed percentages when you need it
  • Cover for the everyday things like GP, dental and physio
