Peace of mind
Sadly, while you may be in perfect health now it is very possible that you may become unwell at some stage of your life. You will need to be able to get back to full health as soon as possible.
Unfortunately the public heath system in New Zealand often does not give fast access to treatment. That’s where private Medical Insurance NZ is needed. Health Insurance gives you peace of mind that, should you become unwell, you will have prompt access to treatment without the otherwise high costs of private healthcare.
By avoiding the waiting times often associated with the New Zealand public health system you can also avoid deteriorating health and reduced quality of life while waiting for treatment. What’s more it means you can get back to work as soon as possible, allowing you to continue supporting your family and paying your bills. According to the Ministry of Economic Development people with ill health who don't have Health Insurance is one of the five main causes of bankruptcy.
As time passes, circumstances change and we become more exposed to risk or have more that’s worth protecting. These events can trigger the need to evaluate your need for Health Insurance. Whether you already have health insurance or you’re a first time buyer, Insure Me can help.
