It covers my doctor’s visits and prescription at 50%. I have used it twice to pay the excess on surgery. I can use it for podiatrists and change of vision lenses. I am happy with this.

So positive. It is my cheapest healthcare insurance and I claim so regularly. I am sure I receive in GP/Dental and pharmacy refunds more than my premiums are.
TT, Member since 2015 from Auckland
Communication good. Any queries always answered to my satisfaction. Very affordable rates - mainly used for doctor"s visits and change of vision with my glasses.

I have an added sense of security knowing that there is some support available for medical costs at a reasonable premium. As a single person there may be times when I need a more expensive medical procedure that will affect me financially so Health Care insurance will be helpful if this occurs.

I appreciate your efforts to be up-to-date with health trends and it seems that you endeavour to reach out to your clients, even if I just skim through at times! All positive, I feel trusted and fairly treated thank you.

Really pleased I am able to have a cover that isn't too expensive while on one wage with two kids. When ringing, emailing and claiming I have always had fast, efficient and helpful communications with people.

Any claims I have made during the many years I have been a member, have been processed with efficiency and within a short time frame. My Health Care Representative has been excellent, and is always available and willing to explain and clarify any claim issues or concerns.

We have been a member of Health Care Plus for over 15years. It has provided cover and benefits for our family at an affordable rate over this time . One family member also had several accident and health issues to recover from. Part payment for the procedures and xrays at the time was very helpful and appreciated.

The online process was easy to follow and the claim paid out quickly. I put a claim in generally twice a year. I use the online form and find it easy to use. Everything goes smoothly so I have not needed to make any further contact beyond the normal process.

It's quick, easy and efficient - what a great team behind the scenes. Our family struggles with budgeting out of our pay packets, but with HealthCarePlus we don't hesitate in accessing health services when we need them as the claims process is so easy.
