At Southern Cross we’re with everyone who gives their everything

We understand the hard work that goes into business, and we’re here to help teams perform at their best. Here’s just some of the reasons why NZ workplaces choose to offer health insurance to their teams:

Why Southern Cross is the right choice as your workplace health insurer

  • More businesses choose Southern Cross to protect their team than any other NZ health insurer
  • We have a range of plan options and can help you find the right fit for your team
  • Southern Cross paid 72% of the value of all health insurance claims in New Zealand in the last financial year. For every dollar received in premiums we paid over 88c in claims.[3]
  • When your staff need to take care of their health, we make claiming easy
