Healthcare Finance to help

Healthcare Finance

New Zealand’s public-funded healthcare system is pretty good, if you’re close to death’s door. However, there is little to no funding – or sometimes impossible thresholds – for healthcare that could prevent a long term health crisis, like bariatric surgery or mole mapping. As for dental treatments and glasses, forget it.

Elective treatments not out of reach

Obesity is behind life-threatening conditions like high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease and stroke. For some people who want to take control of their weight and thereby their long term health – but who do not fit the health system’s very high morbid obesity thresholds – weight loss surgery could save your life, but you will need to foot the bill or sit on a waiting list for years jumping through hoops to get the much need or life-saving surgery.

Weight loss surgery can cost upwards of  $21,000 through the private health system, but the benefits are life-changing and significantly reduce the risk of severe diseases like cancer and heart disease. Sadly, very few applications to the public health system get approved.

By the same token, the high cost of dental treatments put some people at risk of cancer, tooth loss, diabetes, heart disease and even pregnancy complications. Again, you have to pay for your dental health needs out of your own back pocket.

Capping a tooth in New Zealand can set you back $3,000 – $4,000, and between $6,000 and $7,000 for a dental implant. Depending on the extent of the problem, dental bills can run as high as $30,000.

The power of prevention

Perhaps you are overweight or need knee surgery to help you become more mobile. Maybe improving your smile will give you the confidence you need to get out, or the ability to see or hear better will enhance your job prospects, get you exercising and generally improve your wellbeing. 

Let’s face it. There are many reasons why preventative medicine can add to the quality of your life, giving you a longer, more fulfilling and happier life.
