Benefits of membership  - terms and conditions - effective 20 February 2023

Effective from 20 February 2023, (subject to the terms and conditions below) membership with Southern Cross Medical Care Society (“Southern Cross”) will include access to the following healthcare services without the need BUSIto claim under the member’s policy (together the “Benefits”):

Consultations with CareHQ Limited Partnership (“CareHQ”)

Appointments must be booked via the My Southern Cross app and must be between the hours of 7am and 7pm ("Standard Medical Consultation") in order to be free of charge. Members aged 16 years or over must book using their own My Southern Cross login credentials when booking their appointment with CareHQ via the My Southern Cross app. CareHQ is unable to provide consultations for members aged 16 years or over where the appointment has been made using another member’s login. Any appointments for members aged below 16 years will need to be made by the policyholder.

Mental health sessions with Raise Limited (“Raise”)

Up to three counselling or wellbeing coaching sessions with Raise.

Members are entitled to 3 sessions in each claim's year. This does not include any sessions attended between 1 December 2021 and 24 October 2022.

If a Member does not attend their appointment or the Member provides Raise with less than 24 hours’ notice of cancellation of their appointment, the missed appointment will be counted towards the Member’s total of 3 sessions per claims year and the Member will be charged directly by Raise for any subsequent appointments made by them in their current policy’s claim year.

Annual health check with MedPro Healthcare (NZ) Limited (“MedPro”)

Members aged 16 or over will be entitled to one Annual Health Check per claims year.

Annual health checks will take place at one of 15 clinics at various locations across New Zealand with the possibility that additional satellite locations may be made available, based on demand.

The exact make-up of the Annual Health Check will be determined by MedPro, based on their assessment of the Member who has presented to them for their Annual Health Check.

If a Member does not attend their appointment for an Annual Health Check or the Member provides MedPro with less than two business days’ notice of cancellation of their appointment, the missed appointment will be counted as the Member’s Annual Health Check for that claims year and the member will be charged directly for any subsequent appointment made by them in their current policy’s claim year.

Benefits revocable: Southern Cross may, at any time and without providing any prior notice to Members, revoke the deed poll pursuant to which the Benefits are made available to Members, a copy of which is published on this web page (“Deed Poll”) or any of the Benefits. Upon revocation of the Deed Poll or any of the Benefits, Southern Cross shall cease to offer the Benefits to Members and the Members will not be able to take up the Benefits. Any revocation or changes to the Benefits will be notified on this web page.

The Benefits are available to any member of Southern Cross whose policy payments are up to date and the policy is not on hold^ or suspended at the time that they make a booking or receive the relevant Benefit, regardless of the Southern Cross plan that they are on. Any member of Southern Cross whose policy payments are not up to date, or their policy is on hold^ or suspended, will not be able to access the Benefits.

^Exception: if a member puts their policy on hold due to Cyclone Gabrielle hardship, that member may continue to access the Raise provided Benefit (but not the MedPro or CareHQ Benefits) during that on hold period, provided their policy payments are up to date.

Please note the policyholder of the policy you book under will be notified once you have used either the MedPro or Raise Benefits. For Raise, they will see that you have had a counselling session with Raise, but not what type of consultation it was.

Benefits are subject to availability, including (but not limited to) the availability of the professionals who provide the Benefits. Southern Cross accepts no liability for either the Benefits provided by CareHQ, Raise or MedPro or the inability of Southern Cross members to access any of the Benefits during the period that the Benefits are available to members.

Benefits of Membership FAQs - effective 24 October 2022

Premiums and Benefit

Who is paying for this?
These benefits are being paid for by Southern Cross Medical Care Society, using the membership's collective premium.

Will this be built into my premiums for next year?
Yes - although there will be no specific allowance for these benefits - future premium is set to cover all expected costs which will include these benefits.

Will this affect my claims experience?
No, the provision of these benefits is in addition to the cover and/or benefits provided by your policy. The use of these benefits will show up under the 'Communications' tab in My Southern Cross as a 'claim update' but this is for record purposes only and does not count as an actual claim against your policy and will not impact a member's low claims discount.

Terms of offer and access to services

How long are the benefits available for?
The benefits are available until further notice. Southern Cross will notify any changes to the benefits (including its availability) on our website.

How do I access the benefits?
The booking process is different for each of the benefits. The booking processes are covered in detail on our website.

What will happen to my information when I access these services?

The policyholder of the policy you book under will be notified once you have used either the MedPro or Raise Benefits. For Raise, they will see that you have had a counselling session with Raise, but not what type of consultation it was.

Raise and MedPro will access and confirm limited information about you in Southern Cross’ system (such as your name, gender, contact details, your Southern Cross member identifier) to validate and book your consultation. Southern Cross will receive a record that you had a Raise, CareHQ or MedPro consultation and for Raise, what type of consultation it was. We will only use this information to help process and analyse consultation uptake.

Southern Cross won’t receive any further details about your health or consultation with any of the providers. Please refer to each provider’s privacy statement to learn how they will handle your information.

When do my Raise and/or MedPro benefit limits reset?
On your policy's claims anniversary. The limits for each benefit apply to your claims year.

How can I check when my last appointment was?
The use of Raise and Medpro services will show up under the 'Communications' tab in My Southern Cross as a 'claim update' (and the My Southern Cross of the policyholder of the policy you are covered under) . This notice is for record purposes only and does not count as an actual claim against your policy, but does allow you to check your usage. You may also contact Raise and/or MedPro to check your usage and/or remaining balance. CareHQ appointments are unlimited (subject to availability).

My policy is on hold, suspended or my payments are not up to date. Can I use these services?
No. Your policy and membership must be active and payments up to date to utlise these services.

CareHQ

Why do I need to book a CareHQ appointment through the My Southern Cross app?
Making your booking via the My Southern Cross app is part of our process to identify you as a Southern Cross member, meaning you will not be charged for the cost of your consultation.

I see there is a CareHQ app in the App Store. Can I book my free appointment through that?
No. To redeem this offer you must make your booking using the My Southern Cross app.

Can I book a CareHQ appointment for somebody else in my family, on my policy?
Each adult aged 16 years or over on your policy must book using their own login for the My Southern Cross app, and only the policyholder can book an appointment for dependent children. If you haven’t got the My Southern Cross app already, register now and download the app free from the Apple App store or Google Play store.

Does CareHQ work on all mobile browsers?
Android 5.0 or higher. CareHQ is fully supported on devices with ARMv7 processors required for video calling. iOS10 or higher, on the following supported devices: iPhone 6S or later, iPad air or iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 2 or later, iPad Pro (1st generation) or later, iPad (5th generation) or later iPod touch (6th generation).

I'm having technical issues with CareHQ who should I contact?
Firstly, try to connect using your personal internet connection on your personal device rather than a work device. Make sure you’ve got a good internet connection and stay in one place. If there’s a technical problem with the CareHQ consultation, the picture freezes or the sound stops from a poor internet connection, the GP will call you on the mobile number you provided when you made the booking. The GP will try and help you or you may need to complete the consultation on your mobile phone. If you are unable to carry out your consultation at all please book another appointment and email [email protected] to let them know.

I had a CareHQ appointment booked and the GP never showed up, what should I do?
Sometimes the GP may be delayed due to other appointment running over. You will receive an email and a SMS / text message when your GP is ready to connect. If they don't show up at all, please book another appointment and email [email protected] to let them know.

Is there a limit to how many CareHQ sessions I get in my claims year?
No, there is no limit, but the benefit is subject to availability; specifically the availability of appointments and/or the professionals providing the service.

I've seen CareHQ advertising appointments for after-hours and other services that aren't available on the Southern Cross app, why is that?
The GP service that operates standard hours, 7am-7pm, 7 days a week is the benefit being offered to Southern Cross members who book through the Southern Cross app.

Raise

Can I get more than three Raise sessions in my claims year if I need them?
You may continue to see a Raise wellbeing coach or counsellor, but any sessions beyond the first three will be at your own expense.

Can I see a clinical psychologist?
The free counselling services with Raise are limited to Wellbeing, Counselling and Couples Counselling. Raise can provide access to a clinical psychologist if required, but these services will be at your own expense.

If my partner and I are both Southern Cross members, can we each claim three couples counselling sessions in our policy year? (6 in total)
Yes, if both you and your partner are members you can each claim up to three sessions in your policy year.

Is the limit on Raise sessions per policy or per person on the policy?
The three Raise sessions are available to each person listed on the policy, not just the policy holder.

Can I book a Raise appointment for somebody else in my family, on my policy?
Yes, if they are on your policy you can book an appointment for them.

MedPro Annual Health Check

What's included in the annual health check?
The practitioner will tailor the health check to your individual needs based on age and other factors such as family history.

Who is eligible for an annual health check?
A MedPro annual health check is available to any member aged 16 years and older.

I've just paid for my own health check, can I get a refund?
Unless listed under the benefits of your health insurance policy, you are not able to claim for the cost of any other health check. To utlise the annual health check benefit bookings must be made with MedPro using the benefit booking page.

Can I get my annual health check done at my GP?
The health check benefit is only available through MedPro when using the provided booking page. You are still able to have a health check performed by your GP, but this will be at your own expense.

Can I get more than one annual health check each claims year?
No. Members aged 16 and over will only be entitled to one Annual Health Check per claims year.

Where will the MedPro annual health check be completed?
Initially at 15 clinics nationwide with further satellite clinics to be established as required.

Can I book an annual health check for somebody else in my family, on my policy?
Yes, if they are on your policy you can book an appointment for them.

Financial advice, complaints process changes and clarification of consequences of fraud

At Southern Cross it’s important that we are doing the right things for our members and potential members, and we’ve been working on several changes to our policy documents around how we provide advice, our complaints process and clarifying what the consequences are for fraud.

Rest assured there is no change to your cover under your policy. You still receive the same benefits on your policy as before, but we have updated some parts of the policy documents to reflect our licensed financial advice provider status, and the way we protect against fraud. You can view your policy in My Southern Cross.

Financial advice

On Monday 15 March 2021, the Financial Services Legislation Amendment Act 2019 brings into effect a change in the way financial advice is regulated in New Zealand. This includes a requirement that financial advice providers have a licence issued by the Financial Markets Authority, and new duties that financial advice providers, and those that provide financial advice on their behalf, must comply with.

Southern Cross has a financial advice provider’s licence and our nominated representatives are here to give you advice about our health insurance products and to help you understand which of our plans best suit your specific needs and/or the needs of your family members. Find out more about the advice we are able to give you.

Clarifying consequences of fraud

As a not-for-profit Friendly Society that operates for the benefit of members, we need to make sure we’re protected in cases where a member is not truthful about their medical history or personal details or a claim they have submitted. We want to have confidence that when we pay claims for members, they’re genuine. We’ve made some wording changes to our policy documents to clarify the process we will follow to investigate suspicious claims and ensure that it’s clear that if anyone has lied or given us false information in respect to that claim, we have the right not to pay the claim.

Complaints resolution

We’ve also reviewed and updated our complaints process for you to follow should you ever be unhappy about our services, benefits or any financial advice provided. This is to ensure a robust process for resolution of complaints if you are ever dissatisfied. Find out more about our complaints process.

We’re here to help

If you have any questions relating to these changes, please contact us.

1. Introduction

The MySouthernCross Mobile App is a facility established and maintained by Southern Cross Medical Care Society (Southern Cross/we/us/our) which may be accessed using your mobile device. Use of the MySouthernCross Mobile App initially requires the provision by you of your name, date of birth, contact details and policy number or member card number and a PIN number selected by you (together, Security Credentials).

These terms of use contain important information, including disclaimers and limitations of liability. Your use of the MySouthernCross Mobile App constitutes your acceptance of these terms of use.
The terms and conditions of your policy are contained in your policy document. You can view a copy of your policy document online at www.southerncross.co.nz. The terms and conditions of your policy (including benefits, limitations and exclusions) may change from time to time. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event of any conflict between the content of the MySouthernCross Mobile App and the terms and conditions of your policy, the terms and conditions of your policy take precedence.

2. Service Descriptions

Southern Cross has the sole right to determine the extent of your access and the extent of services available via the MySouthernCross Mobile App.

Benefits function

The ‘benefits’ function displays the amount that is available to you to claim for eligible healthcare services based on your annual limits. An annual limit is the maximum amount you can claim in each claims year for an eligible healthcare service, or for the healthcare services within a particular category (e.g. Self-care services).

There may be other conditions or restrictions which apply to the benefits displayed. Please refer to your policy document.

Depending on your policy, some limits may be combined limits. For example, if you have a Health Essentials policy, you have a combined limit for Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Remedial massage therapy, Acupuncture and Dietitian consultations.
Benefits indicated may not be accurate as claim limits are not updated in real time. Benefits are also not payable by Southern Cross until applicable stand-down periods have been served.

Reliance on the information displayed in the benefits function is entirely at your own risk. We suggest you contact us for more accurate information about your claim limits.

Claiming function (applicable to policyholders only)

You may submit a completed claim for eligible healthcare services received by any member covered under your policy through the MySouthernCross Mobile App. Make sure you include a legible photograph or scanned copy of the original itemised receipts which includes the date treatment was provided. We do not accept EFTPOS or credit card receipts. Please retain your original itemised receipts as we may request these be provided to us in order to assess your claim.

The mandatory claim fields must be fully completed and required declarations made to ensure your claim can be processed promptly.
If accepted, we’ll pay your claim refund to the bank account number you give us when you submit your claim.

Prior Approval function

You must apply for prior approval if the cost of your healthcare service is likely to be over $1000 or where any hospitalisation is required, unless you are using an Affiliated Provider. 

You may apply for prior approval through the MySouthernCross Mobile App, either for yourself or for another member on the same policy. You will need to provide estimated charges from your health care service provider for each health care service applied for.

If you apply for prior approval for yourself but you are not the policyholder, you acknowledge that information about that prior approval will be provided to the policyholder, as set out in the relevant policy document.

You should apply for prior approval using the MySouthernCross Mobile App at least five working days prior to the healthcare service being provided.  If the healthcare service will be provided sooner than 5 working days do not apply through the MySouthernCross Mobile App. Instead you must  call us on 0800 800181 to apply

If you do not apply for prior approval before using the healthcare service you will have to pay for the healthcare service yourself and then submit a claim, which will be processed in accordance with your policy.

Please note that some mobile devices will retain a copy of the photograph(s) you take of an invoice or costs estimate using the MySouthernCross Mobile App, and store it on your device (e.g. in the device’s photo gallery).

Member offers function

The member offers function displays offers and discounts available to Southern Cross Health Insurance members from our partners. Terms, conditions, exclusions and availability periods apply to all offers. Visit each offer for full details.

3. Security

Some of the services require the use of a PIN number whether issued by Southern Cross or selected by you. You undertake to take responsibility for, and use your best endeavours to prevent, any unauthorised use of, and access to, your MySouthernCross Mobile App account and to protect your personal information and PIN number at all times. Your PIN number must remain confidential to you alone and you must take all reasonable steps to prevent disclosure of your PIN number. For example, you must:

• memorise your PIN number;
• not write down or save your PIN number anywhere in any form, including electronically, for example, in your mobile phone;
• not leave your mobile device unattended and logged in to the MySouthernCross Mobile;
• not disclose your PIN number to anyone (including the Police, Southern Cross staff or your family);
• take care to ensure no-one can see you enter your PIN number; and
• report the disclosure or possible disclosure of your PIN number to Southern Cross as soon as you are aware or suspect your PIN number have been disclosed.

Where you are required to select a PIN number to use the MySouthernCross Mobile App, the PIN number you choose must not be unsuitable. Unsuitable PIN numbers include:

• birth dates, months or years;
• sequential numbers (e.g. 3456);
• number combinations that may be easily guessed (e.g. 1111);
• parts of your telephone number; and
• other easily accessible personal data (e.g. drivers licence or other numbers easily connected with you).

In addition, you should consider using a different PIN number to access your mobile phone and other cards, bank services or equipment. We encourage you to change your PIN number on a regular basis.

You may be able to use any fingerprint or Face ID stored on your device as your preferred login credentials to access the MySouthernCross Mobile App instead of a PIN (‘Fingerprint Login’ or ‘Face ID Login’). Any person whose fingerprint or Face ID is stored on your device will be able to access your accounts through the MySouthernCross Mobile App. Accordingly, you must ensure that only your fingerprint or Face ID is stored on the device if you wish to use Fingerprint Login or Face ID Login. Fingerprint Login and Face ID Login details are stored on your device and not by the MySouthernCross Mobile App/Southern Cross, so we cannot verify the identity of any person who uses Fingerprint Login or Face ID Login to access your account from your device. You agree that you will be responsible for all actions on your accounts following successful Fingerprint Login or Face ID Login to the MySouthernCross Mobile App.

Please notify us immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised access to or use of your PIN number.
