Medical Treatment Facts
- Currently in New Zealand there is a shortage of senior doctors, a problem that is predicted to result in a shortfall of 670 full-time equivalent senior doctors by 2021.
- Significant numbers of senior specialist doctors reaching retirement age and lifestyle factors are contributing to the problem
- Medical emigration to fill demand for specialist doctors internationally is also putting pressure on New Zealand’s supply of specialist doctors in the future.
Why Health Insurance?
- More choice – you choose how you receive treatment, and with your GP or specialist, you decide when and where.
- Less waiting – while you wait for treatment your health could be deteriorating . If you’re in pain, waiting can be difficult and emotionally draining.
- Less worry – people often worry when they are waiting for treatment and so do the people who love and support them. You won’t have to worry about having the money to pay for the best treatment.
- Protects your income - bad health could result in time off work and lost income for you and/or your dependent family members. If you’re paying for treatment yourself, that’s an additional financial burden
- Access to leading edge treatments - Health practices and treatments are advancing rapidly. Private Health-Insurance can gain you access to treatments that you may not otherwise be able to afford
