New Zealand residents and some work visa holders benefit from a public health system that is free or low cost thanks to heavy Government subsidies.

Non-residents can also use healthcare services at a cost. New Zealand residents can choose to take out medical insurance for private healthcare, although many New Zealanders do not opt for this additional cover.

The New Zealand Now website outlines the healthcare services available including information about general practitioners, hospitals, emergencies, dental care, children’s health, elderly care, mental health and others.
