Meet George - here to highlight some typical health costs

Meet George - who you could describe as 'New Zealand's unluckiest patient'. You name it, George's had it operated on. From cataracts to colonoscopies - George has endured it all.

And with no health insurance in place, George's unexpected treatment costs have left them in a difficult position financially (and errrr...physically). 

It's good to know how much different procedures cost to get a better understanding as to whether you'd benefit from having some cover in place. That's where our pal George comes in.  Although George having all these procedures may be more on the 'make believe' side of things - they do showcase some typical health procedure costs you could expect from treatment in a private hospital.
