New Zealand Health Insurance - Medical Insurance
Your medical insurance contribution is called a premium which can be claimed from a insurance provider when medical treatment is required.
UK and Australian students are entitled to publicly funded urgent medical treatment but they will be required to cover the costs for other types of treatment. Other international students are required to cover themselves for all types of medical treatment whilst they are in New Zealand.
Medical treatment required for accident cases are covered by a national 24-hour, 7-day no-fault accident compensation scheme which makes provisions for subsidised treatment but denies the recipient recourse to legal procedure.
New Zealand Car Insurance - Vehicle Insurance
All vehicle drivers in New Zealand are advised to take out "third party insurance" for any damage or injury they may cause to others
