The New Zealand treasury has projected that health expenditure will double as a percentage of GDP by 2050. At the same time, New Zealand is experiencing declining rates of private health insurance coverage, placing more people at the mercy of the public system. The New Zealand government at present has minimal involvement in the activities of the private health insurance industry.
This website presents the key findings of a policy project investigating the possibility of government involvement in incentivising the uptake of private health insurance in New Zealand.
To learn more, feel free to begin by reviewing the executive summary. Should you wish to see this project in greater detail, the full policy report is also available through this site.
