A major health problem can put your life on hold. To get back to living you need quality advice and treatment and you need to get it quickly.
Medical insurance provides you and your family with access to the very best medical expertise at a time that suits you, in a hospital of your choice.
New Zealand’s public health system provides good services for emergency situations (like a car crash), but for other health problems, even very serious ones like cancer treatment, you can spend months or even years on a waiting list.
If you have medical insurance you won’t need to wait. You can access high quality treatment quickly and focus on getting better.
