Are you eligible for healthcare funding?

The New Zealand government sets the eligibility criteria for funding for health and disability services.There are a number of groups who meet eligibility criteria, including New Zealand citizens and permanent residents, most Australian citizens and permanent residents (conditions apply), and children of eligible people.

Read the full list of eligible people on the Ministry of Health’s website.

Patients of HVDHB will be asked to provide documents to prove their eligibility (New Zealanders should only need to provide this the first time).

If you’re eligible for funding most (but not all) of HVDHB’s services will be provided free of charge.
