What do you do when Pharmac won’t pay?

Sometimes it takes time for new and revolutionary lifesaving drugs, like Keytruda, to get funding from New Zealand drug agency Pharmac. For some people, that funding may come too late

A lump sum payment from a Trauma Protection policy could, however, make a substantial contribution to privately funded, potentially lifesaving or life extending treatments. 

Most Trauma Protection policies cover around 40 major conditions, including the three that top the claims list – cancer, strokes and heart attacks (provided that the policy definitions are met). A Trauma Policy pays out a lump sum of cash which you spend at your own discretion, whether to pay the bills, access other treatments or spend quality time with your family.

If you would like to know more about Trauma Protection cover, talk to a Financial Adviser from our complementary financial advice business called AdviceFirst about what will work for you on 0800 438 238 or email letstalk@advicefirst.co.nz
