Become an Affiliated Provider

Southern Cross welcomes the opportunity to talk with suitably qualified healthcare providers about joining the Affiliated Provider programme.

To become an Affiliated Provider you need to:

  • Meet registration requirements under the HPCA Act.
  • Where appropriate, have vocational registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand for your relevant scope of practice.
  • Have a current practising certificate.
  • Be working from a facility that meets certain facility standards (for specific healthcare services).

Our Contract Managers will talk to you about:

  • Where you practise or operate.
  • The range of healthcare services you offer.
  • Healthcare services which may be suitable to deliver through the Affiliated Provider programme.
  • Remuneration for your healthcare services.
