Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Auckland?
When we asked expats in Auckland if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Auckland, they wrote...
"Healthcare and health insurance in Auckland can be considered relatively expensive, especially for those without government subsidies or access to public healthcare. The cost of healthcare services, such as doctor visits, prescriptions, and hospital treatments, can be high for those who are not eligible for public funding. Health insurance premiums can also be costly, depending on the level of coverage and the individual's age and health status. However, New Zealand does have a public healthcare system that provides free or low-cost services to residents, which can help offset some of these expenses. For those who are not eligible for public healthcare or prefer private services, the costs can be a significant financial burden," explained one expat living in Auckland, New Zealand.
