KiwiCare is a shared cover plan. Shared cover means you and Southern Cross each pay some of the costs of the healthcare services you receive.

The plan provides a contribution towards cancer care, surgical treatment, specialist consultations, diagnostic imaging, tests and some recovery and support.

To help reduce your premiums, you can add a $500 excess to your plan (KiwiCare Budget).

† Prosthesis maximums apply.
