Be Part of Something Better

Created by Unions, for their members – we aim to support the
physical, mental, and financial well-being of NZ’s teachers and public sector
workers. Despite our name, we offer a range of 'better than market' services,
beyond health cover.

Healthcare Plans

It’s good to have a plan

Whether you’re supporting your health costs day to day or protecting yourself
from the bigger things life can throw at you – knowing that you and your Whānau
are covered is worth a lot. And with HealthCarePlus cover it doesn’t have to
cost a lot because you’re only paying for your healthcare and not shareholder profit

Our day-to-day plans bring genuine benefits through everyday life (not just when someone gets ill) and can leave a typical family better off by hundreds of dollars every year.

Travel Insurance

Discounted Travel Insurance

As a HealthCarePlus member you are entitled to discounted trave insurance.
We've negotiated a travel insurance product with Cover-More Travel Insurance
which is designed to protect you and your family when the unexpected happens on holiday.

— We have Two Types of Policies

We’ve negotiated two travel insurance policies with Cover-More at a discounted rate. They are designed to protect you and your family when the unexpected happens on holiday.  Both YourCover and Essentials are available as Single Trip or Annual Multi-Trip policies.  If you are a frequent traveller, rather than buying a Single Trip policy each time you travel, you may want to buy an Annual Multi-Trip policy. The COVID-19 benefits are available on single trip YourCover policies.

"YourCover" policy

YourCover is Cover-More’s comprehensive, with some unique optional extras so you can tailor your cover to your needs.

YourCover is available as a Single Trip or Annual Multi-Trip policy.  If you are a frequent traveller, rather than buying a Single Trip policy each time you travel, you may want to buy an Annual Multi-Trip policy. 

Note: Domestic cover is currently only available on the YourCover policy.

Estate Planning

Making a will is easy and affordable

We’ve partnered with Public Trust, New Zealand's largest provider of wills and
estate administration services to provide our Members, access to their new online platform 
that makes it easy to get a will, enduring power of attorney and statement of wishes sorted 
in your own time from the comfort of your own home without large lawyer bills. Plus, we’ve negotiated 
a 15% discount for all HealthCarePlus Members, so it makes getting that will even more affordable.

— Get your will and EPA online

Public Trust’s online platform is accessible 24/7 and fully secure.  The services cover all needs – from simple to complex and it’s quick and easy to complete yourself. Plus Public Trust’s New Zealand based support team are available for live chat or a phone call help too.

— How it works

  • Choose whether you want an online EPA or will.
  • There are 3 types of online wills (see table here)
  • Create your account and follow the easy step-by-step process to choose all your options including the executor of your will, the guardians for your children and any beneficiaries of your estate.
  • When your document is created, remember to use the exclusive HealthCarePlus code to get your discount  
  • Once paid for, you can download, review, and amend it for 30 days. 
  • When you're happy with your document, make it legally valid. That’s easy too - it must be printed and physically signed in front of two witnesses. You don't need a lawyer or JP to witness your will, but your two witnesses must be people who don't benefit from the will.

— Online wills and enduring powers of attorney

Online wills

Your will is often your last message to your loved ones. It is a legal document that is unique to you and can help make sure your assets, the people and things you love are taken care of after you’re gone.

It also specifies who is responsible for carrying out your final wishes; this person is known as the executor of your will.
