Lower Cost General Practice Visits

Lower Cost General Practice Visits

From 1st December 2018 it will cost less to see the GP in New Zealand.

There are two groups of people who particularly benefit.

  1. People with a Community Services Card (CSC) and their dependants aged 14 to 17.  If you are enrolled with a GP and have a CSC you will be charged no more than $18.50 per visit to the GP for a standard appointment.
  2. All children aged 13 and under (and enrolled with a GP) will be able to visit the GP for free.

There are lots of places to find more information about these changes, and they include the Ministry of Health website.  You can also talk to us here at the practice – we will be happy to answer any questions you may have!
