We have recently added nibs non-PHARMAC Plus option to our product range on Quotemonster. non-PHARMAC Plus ranges from $20,000 to $300,000, is available through both adviser and group business channels, and can be added to new or existing hospital covers (i.e. Ultimate Health Max) however only available to existing members on legacy products from 5th July 2021.
The Addon is designed to offer customers more access to potentially life-saving treatments not publically funded by PHARMAC, are Medsafe approved and have been prescribed or administered in line with Medsafe’s guidelines – not just cancer treatments.
The benefit covers the cost of these medicines where nib has accepted a claim for treatment and where the non-PHARMAC drugs are used in a private hospital or at home for up to six months after being admitted to hospital for treatment. The benefit also covers any drug administration costs. Additionally, there are no waiting periods when members choose to add this option to their policy.
You can select the nib non-PHARMAC Plus options in your Product Settings screen:
