Comments from our union partners:
"NZEI Te Riu Roa is proud to be one of the founding union owners of HealthCarePlus. It's a not-for-profit health insurer created by union members for union members to provide low cost insurance to cover you (and your whanau's) day-to-day medical costs.
NZEI members are the largest group of HealthCarePlus subscribers who recognise the real value for money products they can get, who like dealing with an organisation with a member first, values driven approach and who know the benefits of working collectively to look after each other.
So, if you're an NZEI Te Riu Roa member and not yet a HealthCarePlus subscriber, why not take a closer look?"
General Manager - Operations
“HealthCarePlus is different because it was established by workers, for workers and it continues to serve union members everywhere. PSA is proud to have been associated with it for so many years. Our members have benefited from affordable, supplementary healthcare for themselves and their families and we stand by the products on offer at HealthCarePlus, and the work of their great team.”
PSA National Secretary
"Members of the Tertiary Education Union appreciate greatly the benefits of belonging to HealthCare+. Not only is it exceptional value for money at a time when many costs are rising especially the cost of keeping whanau and family well and healthy, but the fact that HealthCare+ is owned by the education unions means that once again the collective power of belonging to a union benefits members. Great value and great service."
TEU National Secretary
"PPTA are proud to be a member of HealthCarePlus and include their services as a premier package as part of our members benefits scheme.
We positively promote HealthCarePlus at all of our conferences and events and look forward to continuing our successful association with them."
PPTA Members Benefit Coordinator
"Members of the Independent Schools Education Association (ISEA) appreciate the benefits of belonging to HealthCarePlus and the range of healthcare and insurance products and services offered through the scheme. ISEA are proud of our relationship with HealthCarePlus because it is owned by the education unions which means that members benefit from the collective power of belonging to a union to get affordable supplementary healthcare. We were also pleased to hear that HealthCare Plus was the first accredited Living Wage Employer in the insurance sector."
Comments from our HealthCarePlus Members:
"You are absolutely wonderful at processing the claims promptly for us.
Please know it's really appreciated. It's especially so when ones health isn't the best as it means that it's one less stress to manage. "
"I’m always impressed by the instant responses I receive.
I’m not used to this level of efficiency from insurance providers.
Ngā mihi nui,"
Erik Merkens, 28/03/18
"I’m so very pleased that we can make claims via email now, it makes life so much easier! :-)
We’ve always been very happy with your prompt and friendly service!
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year."
"I wish to state that 'it's good to belong' to HealthCarePlus is certainly true!
I have belonged to this health insurance organisation for many years, since the 1980's and have always had fast, efficient and courteous service.
When I was still teaching I always recommended EBS/HeathCarePlus without hesitation to young teachers citing my own positive experience with you.
Thank you for being such a truly supportive organisation."
Joan Sim (Retired Teacher) 08/08/17
"Thank you so much for actioning my recent claim so very promptly, as you always do.
You are the most efficient and helpful organisation I have ever dealt with.
Phone queries are always answered by a person which is a plus for a start. The added plus is that the person at the other end of the phone is always so helpful.
I went on a course some years ago which said there are two halves when it comes to work – one half is the actual work people do and the other half is the way people behave as they do this work and that each half is as important as the other. Your organisation has both halves well and truly covered."
"I would like to congratulate you for being the first insurance place to ensure your employees are on the LIVING WAGE. Well done."
"We have seldom made any claims for many many years until this past year. We have been very appreciative of the great response and support of the team at HealthCarePlus and the accommodating way with which you have assisted us in recent months. Please pass on our grateful thanks."
"I should have also identified you for the assistance you gave me last year and the helpful and pleasant manner you dealt with me. We are not good “claimers” and often don’t bother BUT when I had two quite serious setbacks last year we felt support by HealthCare+ and when we needed support you graciously obliged."
Bill Barrett (husband of Sally)
"Oh my gosh! You're like lightening!
Thanks so much for your communications and best wishes For Monday (you're so chipper) and the prompt service.
Gold star from this teacher for you"
"Thank you so much for my claim remittance advice. So quick and definitely not stressful. I really appreciate it.
I was seriously impressed."
"Thanks HealthCarePlus, especially for the heads up that I hadn't claimed back my approved Hospital Cover policy excess back. I was talking about how fabulous you all are to remind me of this. Big points for HealthCarePlus. I've been with EBS/HealthCarePlus since 1996 and I appreciate that you are looking after me."
