Health Insurance? New Zealand Has Lesser Need – But Still A Need

When it comes to health insurance, New Zealand has some interesting statistics to offer. When it comes to taking medicines or suffering from major illnesses, New Zealand ranks very low, coming in dead last among the major developed countries, where ranking low is a good thing. An exception is heart attacks, where New Zealand ranks fairly high. What the statistics don’t tell us is since we are a healthy lot we don’t need to take as many medicines, or that we are healthier because we don’t rely so much on them.

Being healthy doesn’t lessen the need for health insurance. It simply means that the number of claims tend to be fewer, especially the number of large claims. That is something that is good for us all, but we still need cover, since those who like to brag that they haven’t been sick a day in their lives can still end up with medical bills that need paying. What being healthy means is an improved chance of finding a lower cost on a policy. Not taking out health insurance because you are well is no different than not taking out life insurance in the belief that you are immortal.
