How does it Impact your Medical Insurance?
ACC is designed to cover accidents which all New Zealanders have access to. The role of ACC is to provide treatment and rehabilitation services for anyone who suffers an injury as a result of an accident. It does not cover anything that is not deemed to be an accident. However if your claim is declined by ACC, this is when your private medical insurer could pay you treatment costs.
How much can treatment cost?
We’re lucky to have a good public healthcare system in New Zealand, but if you develop a condition that isn’t life threatening, you might not receive the treatment you require straight away.
A recent survey found 73% of adults in New Zealand would not be able to afford elective surgery costing $5,000 or more. Even if your condition is not life threatening, not being able to receive the treatment you require straight away could have a huge impact on your life. Beside are some indicative costs for common procedures.
Ensure you and your family are protected from the unexpected.
You can call the shots.
Medical Insurance can also cover treatments for cancers and other treatable illnesses making sure you get the most comfortable treatment available.
