New Zealanders are delaying the healthcare they need

When sick, 46% of New Zealanders delay or avoid health appointments due to cost.

46% of New Zealanders who do not have health insurance delay seeing a health professional when they are sick for two days or longer or don’t go at all due to cost and inability to get an appointment.1 Delaying health needs can very quickly affect an individual’s wellbeing, spilling over into work life, creating a culture of disengaged staff. Considering that people spend an average of 30% of their waking life at work, employers stand to benefit the most from their employees’ improved health and wellness.2

By providing the opportunity for staff to proactively seek care, we can reduce the need for more expensive and complex treatments down the road. This helps to create a healthier, happier, more productive workforce, with fewer sick days and improved overall wellbeing.
