Can I get treatment overseas with my ASB health insurance?
Yes, we have a range of options for treatment overseas:
- You can choose to receive treatment worldwide. If you receive treatment in Australia, we cover up to 100% of reasonable charges for treatment payable in New Zealand. If you receive treatment outside of Australia, we cover up to 75% of those reasonable charges as defined in your policy.
- If the treatment you need isn’t available in New Zealand, we offer up to $30,000 per year towards overseas treatment costs.
- If the wait time in New Zealand’s private health system is longer than six months, we will pay up to 100% of the reasonable charges for treatment payable in New Zealand so you can have the necessary treatment overseas.
