AIA New Zealand Expands Health Insurance Cover

In this iPMI plans and products article, international private medical insurance market analyst and report author Ian Youngman, looks at news that has expanded its health insurance cover.

  • AIA NZ has made enhancements to its health insurance products to cover prophylactic or preventative surgery following an acceptable breast or ovarian cancer claim, subject to certain criteria.
  • Previously, AIA NZ’s health insurance products specifically excluded all preventative treatment, including those related to cancer.
  • Through customer feedback, a need was identified for a benefit to be available to customers who are diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer, have an acceptable treatment claim, and are seeking preventative surgery to remove the unaffected breast (mastectomy) or ovaries (oophorectomy) following confirmation of a BRCA gene mutation responsible for increased susceptibility to cancer.
  • AIA New Zealand is a leading life insurer in the New Zealand market,
  • It is part of the AIA Group, the largest independent publicly listed life insurance group in Asia-Pacific.

AIA NZ Acting Chief Product and Investments Officer, Nick Sutherland says “As an insurer, we’re continually reviewing our coverage options to ensure they meet the needs of our customers.”

“We’ve made these changes in recognition that preventative surgery is often medically recommended for these customers to reduce their risk of subsequent cancer events, so they can have greater peace of mind and go on to live a Healthier, Longer, Better Life,” concludes Nick.

AIA New Zealand is a leading life insurer with over 40 years’ experience in the New Zealand market and is part of the AIA Group, the largest independent publicly listed life insurance group in Asia-Pacific. With a unique customer value proposition focused on life, health and wellbeing, AIA New Zealand’s purpose is to help New Zealanders live Healthier, Longer, Better Lives.
