For health professionals

As New Zealand's leading not-for-profit health insurer, we work alongside healthcare providers to help Southern Cross members get value for money from their health insurance.

For almost two decades we've been building relationships with medical specialists, GPs and allied health professionals.

The Southern Cross Affiliated Provider programme

The Affiliated Provider programme provides Southern Cross members with access to a range of healthcare services at agreed prices, and makes prior approval and claiming easier.

There are more than 700 Affiliated Provider agreements across New Zealand, including 1,300 healthcare providers, covering 20 different medical specialties.

Southern Cross Health Society Easy-claim

Easy-claim is a convenient way for members to claim for eligible day-to-day healthcare services at participating GP, optometrist, dental, physiotherapy, audiology practices and pharmacies. Members can claim at the time of purchase, without completing a claim form.

Rising healthcare costs

Concern about rising healthcare costs continues to be top of mind for Southern Cross members. Sustained increases in price will make access to private healthcare increasingly difficult for many New Zealanders. Since 1950, spending on healthcare in New Zealand has climbed by 412 per cent compared with a 144 per cent rise in GDP.
