The Affiliated Provider programme
The Affiliated Provider programme was first established in 1997 with the aim of ensuring a wide range of New Zealanders have timely, affordable and sustainable access to private healthcare.
Affiliated Providers are doctors, specialists and facilities that provide Southern Cross members with healthcare services at agreed prices. By contracting with healthcare providers, we aim to minimise the impact of rising healthcare costs on members’ premiums, so they can continue to access private healthcare.
With the support of over 2,312 healthcare providers across 35 specialties, the programme, as of 30 June 2022, accounts for over 63 per cent of all Southern Cross’ claim’s costs.
