AA Health says that its Everyday policy covers day-to-day medical expenses like dentistry, consultations with a general practitioner, physiotherapist and optometrist. The policy provides for up to $900 worth of cover each year, with a 60% reimbursement on eligible claims. 

What’s Covered by the AA Health Private Hospital Policy?

Offering an elevated level of cover compared with its Everyday policy, AA Health’s Private Hospital Policy includes diagnostic cover, provision for up to $300,000 for surgery per year, $200,000 medical and cancer cover per year, treatments in a recognised private hospital and cover for most pre-existing conditions. 

What’s Covered by the AA Health Private Hospital and Specialist Policy?

Perhaps its most comprehensive health insurance offering, the Private Hospital and Specialist policy from AA Health covers customers for specialist consultations, diagnostics, surgery up to $300,000 per year, medical and cancer expenses up to $200,000 per year, treatments in a recognised private hospital and cover for most pre-existing conditions.

What Don’t AA Health’s Health Insurance Policies Cover?

Similar to other health insurance providers, exclusions vary between each policy and centre largely around eligibility criteria for each level of cover. 

What Makes AA Health’s Health Insurance Policies Different?

As a longstanding New Zealand business, AA Health leverages on its reputation as a trusted provider that can offer a “quick application process”, the brand also offers premium discounts for AA members as well as cover for most pre-existing conditions after a period of three-years.
