HealthCarePlus was created by the unions who protect your rights at work - to protect your health in life.
We give eligible union members (and their families) the chance to be part of a uniquely generous and affordable healthcare scheme that’s designed to benefit you in everyday life, not just when you’re sick… and can often save typical families hundreds of dollars more than it costs, each year.
— Here’s what you're part of with HealthCarePlus
For as little as a few dollars a week, our Primary Care packages help offset your day-to-day health costs across a very broad range of services - making personal and family healthcare, truly affordable.
You can claim a wide range of benefits - with no ‘pre-existing condition’ exclusions - and once you sign up, you (and your family) can continue to access our benefits for life, even if you leave your union.
It’s about healthcare you’ll actually use in normal life - that’s there to maximise your benefit, not minimise our payouts - backed up with comprehensive hospital cover if you need it, through our Hospital Select scheme.
You’ll join thousands of education and public sector workers, who are getting even more value out of their union membership - by accessing healthcare support that’s been specifically designed for the NZ healthcare system, and to work ‘everyday’ for its members.
This means that a typical family, with typical needs, might save hundreds of dollars more than they pay, each year! To calculate your potential savings, just click here.
A not-for-profit provider
While many of us would prefer healthcare to be universal (and free) - today’s reality makes paid cover a necessity for most New Zealanders. But while private providers are there to maximise profits to shareholders, which can shape their costs, benefits (and fine print) - we’re a union-created cooperative, that only exists to do the best thing, and the right thing, by you.
This means more generous, transparent products and a claims process that’s designed around paying your claim, not hindering it. This leads to more satisfied customers. See what this means for our members, right here.
Supporting your sector
We’re not just here to provide healthcare - we’re here to help support and increase the physical, mental and financial well-being of all our members. We do this through supporting research, and providing relevant advice to your sector - and by re-investing any excess surplus we do make, into charitable grants that support your values and objectives.
So as well as getting better healthcare, you’re also supporting better outcomes for yourself, your family, your colleagues, and your sector.
— I want everyday support
Our Primary Care cover is designed to maximise the benefits paid to you, not minimise them. Plus, our Plans have less of the usual barriers and exclusions to join and often pay out more each year to typical families, than they cost. And once you’re a Member, you and your family can enjoy the benefits, not just for the rest of your union membership – but for the rest of your life.
