Importance of Removing Cost Barriers From Healthcare

Access to Healthcare

When cost is a barrier, many individuals and families, especially those with lower incomes or limited resources, may be unable to afford necessary medical services. Removing cost barriers ensures that everyone, regardless of their financial situation, has equal access to healthcare services.


Improved Public Health Outcomes

When New Zealanders can access healthcare without worrying about the financial burden, they are more likely to seek timely medical attention, preventive care and early interventions. This leads to better management of chronic conditions, early detection of diseases, screenings and improved overall health outcomes. 


Reduced Healthcare Disparities

Cost barriers disproportionately affect marginalised communities, exacerbating existing healthcare disparities. Lower-income individuals and other underserved populations are more likely to face financial obstacles when accessing healthcare. Removing these barriers helps bridge the gap in healthcare access and contributes to reducing disparities in health outcomes among different socioeconomic and demographic groups.
