If you require medical treatment in New Zealand, there are reciprocal agreements, but a person may not enrol with a Primary Health Organisation (PHO). They should get the same health subsidies as a New Zealand citizen visiting a general practitioner as a casual patient, if the doctor has decided the condition needs prompt attention.
For more information please follow either:
- Visiting : www.health.govt.nz
- Email at : firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are admitted to hospital contact must be made with the Medical Emergency Assistance company as soon as possible and their authority obtained in respect of any treatment NOT available under a Primary Health Organisation.
In the event of liability being accepted for a medical expense which has been reduced by the use of either EHIC, Medicare in Australia or private health insurance, we will not apply the deduction of the policy excess.
