But not all treatments are available through the public health system in New Zealand. We must understand that public funding can only reach so far and they cover the treatments they think would help the larger number of people.
Here at Apex we believe that one must take responsibility for our health and wellbeing. It starts by looking after yourself in your everyday life. It also means having the right cover in place should anything happen to you, so you can access the latest treatments. So you have the peace of mind of knowing you can afford that treatment.
If you need treatment that is not publicly funded, do you want to risk becoming a financial burden to your loved ones and your community? Would you rely on a Give-a-little page?
