Referring to an Affiliated Provider
The Affiliated Provider (AP) programme is one way we are working with healthcare providers to manage the impact of rising healthcare costs on our members' premiums. An AP is a doctor, specialist or medical facility contracted to provide Southern Cross members with certain healthcare services at agreed prices. Find out more about the AP programme.
Easier claiming and keeping premiums affordable are among the many benefits the AP programme delivers to Southern Cross members. That’s why we encourage you to refer patients who are Southern Cross members to APs where possible.
We want to make it easy for you to do this so we’ve partnered up with some referral services you commonly use. You can now use online directory Healthpages.co.nz and referral services Specialist & Referrals (through Medtech) and HealthLink CareSelect (within your electronic medical record systems).
You and Southern Cross members alike can also find an AP through www.healthcarefinder.co.nz
