As a Resident of NZ Yes I do. I have had it for some time. The governemnt funded health services is great, but just in case i end up getting something more long term I feel the protection of insurance will help.

Try Tower, Axa or Vero.

Hey guys,

PM/ email me if you want a more personal reply but the product I use for my clients is ING, this is because they cover the non Pharmac drugs, so any drug which isnt government subsidised.

In regards to dental,, yes you can get dental cover, however its not cheep. If the dental cover is to protect you from surgery needs i e impacted wisdom teeth this is covered under the ING policy.

However fillings ect would not be.

My advise would be to use your broker or PM/email me and ill help out.

'Tis always worth checking the dates on the top of the postings - quite a few of the posts here are very old (the initial posts were 2005, and the next one was 2008!), and there are a lot of people around who don't post here any more...

We are also not allowed to recommend companies on here, due to the probability that the people recommending are signing up purely to promote their services (though obviously, I don't think that about you!), so please could you edit your post to remove the company name? Particularly as you have said in your Kia Ora post that you are a financial advisor - it could be seen as advertising!

I'm afraid you also aren't allowed to use PM until you've become an established member of the boards...

I don't want you to think I'm coming down heavy handed, but I'd rather make you aware of things before too long! :wink:
