On 5th August 2019, New Zealand insurance company Sovereign was officially incorporated into AIA Group. AIA products were upgraded from that day. AIA Living Health insurance fully covers your medical costs in New Zealand, helping you to choose the best treatments and medicines.
With Health Insurance, you can say:
"I don't want to wait, I want the best treatment, I want the best equipment, I want the best medicine!"
According to statistics, the waiting time for patients undergoing surgery through private hospitals is 101 days less than the public hospitals in New Zealand! What does 101 day mean? This means that if you line up and wait, cancer may turn from Phase II to Phase III!
For example, the treatment of cancer in New Zealand public hospitals is still based on chemotherapy and radiotherapy. But nowadays, target drugs, proton therapy, and immunotherapy have become more and more popular. These therapies are efficient but not subsidized, and they cost a lot!
On the other hand, if you want to get imported drugs, patented drugs, you have to pay for your own.
