Best Medical Insurance

Who has the best medical insurance will depend on the benefits you are looking for in your cover.  In my opinion, one of the main criteria is where medical insurance will pay for Non-Pharmac subsidised drug treatment. For example, in today's' modern society new innovative drugs are being developed to help treat cancer, and some of the new drugs help those who are undergoing cancer treatment, but unless Pharmac subsidises the new drugs, they are far too expensive for most individuals.  Medical insurance could make the difference between life or death. So who has the best medical insurance? Most major [...]

Making your insurance claim smoother

  Making your insurance claim go smoother would make our lives easier, and less stressful at a time where we already may be emotionally charged. Often we have a number of complimenting insurance policies to cover a number of risks, events and conditions that are particular to our needs.  We want to make sure that when we need to claim, that it is not a paperwork nightmare and that we do not get caught up talking to different people and companies for the same insurance claim.
