What we do differently
100% free service
There are no added fees or charges for our service. The advisers we partner with are paid entirely by the insurance providers. It is well worth it for them, because they get highly-qualified customers. Meanwhile, you get to take advantage of a free service, so you can find the right insurance protection to safeguard your future.
Licenced financial advisers
We know that navigating insurance products is overwhelming. With so many options, it is incredibly hard to figure out the best policy for your unique circumstances and budget. So we connect you with a Licenced Financial Adviser who has extensive experience in the insurance industry. They have the knowlege and access to guide you through all Health, Life and Disability insurance products across the market—ensuring you make a wise and properly-informed decision.
Lifetime claims support protection
Your adviser will support you not just in finding insurance, but using it. Any time you need help with something, they’ll be there to help you. Questions about your policy? Ask them. Need to make changes to your coverage? They’ll do it for you. Have to file a claim? They’ll take care of that. Having an argument with the insurer about getting a pay-out? Let them handle it—they know how!
Although online comparison tools are quick, their advice is inaccurate, because it’s based on such limited information. With us, you talk to a licenced financial adviser—just a 5-minute call lets us provide you with truly personalised guidance. Your adviser accounts for your financial situation, lifestyle, and future plans to find the perfect policy for you. And they can explain complex insurance terms, conditions, and exclusions in plain language, so you can make an informed decision.
Our complete services
Every year, thousands of Kiwis discover just how bad our public health system is. They get sick or injured—then have to wait ages for treatment. In desperation, many pay tens of thousands for private care. Health insurance means you don’t have to pay for private treatment out of your own pocket. It protects you and your loved ones from unreliable care at overloaded public hospitals. With the right coverage, you have peace of mind that you can fast-track your recovery. Public health has seen delays up to 14 years…private treatment averages 30 days. Protect yourself from unexpected injuries and medical expenses.
Income protection insurance
If you get sick or disabled and cannot do your job, where is your income going to come from? Income protection insurance covers a high percentage of your income if you become sick or disabled, and can’t work in your current job. Whatever the crisis—injury, illness, or redundancy—you’ll have steady cashflow for yourself and your loved ones. No worrying about how to pay the bills, or how to get back on your feet faster. The government “safety net” won’t cover nearly enough of your income to keep you financially stable—but the right income protection insurance policy will.
Who will provide for your loved ones if you’re gone? No one likes to think about death, but for those with dependents, it’s part of the job. You have to take care of everyone who relies on you—even if you’re not around. With the right life insurance policy, your family’s financial future is secure regardless of what happens to you. Whether it’s paying off debts, covering funeral costs, or providing for your children’s education, life insurance is a simple and cost-effective way to invest in your family’s future. Make sure they stay protected when you can no longer do it.
Mortgage repayment insurance
Your home is the center of your life—and your most important investment. But it can become an overwhelming financial burden, and source of crippling anxiety, if you’re suddenly unable to work. The right mortgage repayment insurance lets you relax, knowing that no matter what happens to you, your repayments will continue. Illness, injury, or redundancy may prevent you from making money, but you won’t have to worry about losing your house. Protect your way of life—secure the future of your home with mortgage repayment insurance.
Total permanent disability insurance
A sudden disabling injury can destroy you life. Why risk it? Total permanent disability insurance protects you and your family even if something terrible happens to you. With the right coverage, you’ll have the financial support you need to protect the way of life your family is used to. If you get a catastrophic disability and cannot ever work again, where will your money come from? With government compensation and support very limited, total permanent disability insurance can help you maintain your standard of living. Hope is not a strategy—secure your future.
Be prepared for the worst. Trauma insurance gives you a lump sum payout for up to 50 conditions. The most common are early stage cancer, heart attacks and strokes. Trauma insurance can help you deal with the sudden shock of such events, so you can focus on recovery—instead of medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and lost income. It is wise to have a safety net to cushion the blow of life’s toughest moments, especially if you have dependants. Trauma insurance helps shield not just you, but also your family, during unexpected crises that might otherwise destroy your way of life.
Frequently asked questions
Is health insurance worth it?
Definitely. It provides financial protection against unexpected medical expenses, which can be debilitating, even with public health care.
Perhaps more importantly, health insurance gives you access to better quality healthcare—especially much faster treatment, and more treatment options. New Zealand’s public health system has very long wait times for many treatments, and only funds a small selection of drugs. Health insurance means you don’t wait weeks or months to get help, and you have access to new and effective drugs that would otherwise be simply unaffordable.
Many people only discover these things too late. They have a serious illness or injury, and are put through terrible financial and emotional distress thanks to our increasingly awful public health system. We offer our Insurance Spy service because we truly believe that everyone should have good health insurance to protect both their own, and their family’s, health and finances.
What are the benefits of health insurance?
- It can offer faster access to medical treatment, such as surgery, hospitalisation, specialist appointments, and diagnostic tests. This can help reduce wait times in the incredibly slow public healthcare system. Often health insurance means the difference between waiting days, and waiting months.
- Health insurance can give you greater control over your healthcare choices, including the ability to choose your preferred healthcare provider.
- It can also cover a range of healthcare services that may not be available through the public system, such as elective surgery or non-Pharmac funded medication.
- Finally, health insurance can provide financial protection against unexpected medical expenses, which can be especially important for those with chronic health conditions.
Will my pre-existing conditions be covered?
Pre-existing conditions can be covered by health insurance, but this depends on the policy you choose. Some policies may have exclusions or waiting periods for pre-existing conditions, while others may cover them with higher premiums.
If you have a pre-existing condition, it’s really important to carefully review the details of any policy you’re considering. This can be very tricky for the layman, but it is something your Insurancy Spy adviser will always do for you.
When it comes to comparing health insurance policies, things can get complicated quickly. With so many providers and varying coverage options available, it can be tough to determine what’s best for you.
