Health Insurance Premiums Slashed With Voluntary Excess

Kiwi Discount Club members can now save up to 30% on their health insurance premiums each year by nominating a voluntary excess of $1,000.

By way of an example a couple (Male Age 40 and Female Age 38) stand to save $13,000 in premiums over a 20 year period by electing to take a $1,000 excess as opposed to the standard nil excess policy offered by most health insurance companies.

Members of Kiwi Discount Club also enjoy an exclusive additional benefit. In the event of a health insurance claim in the first two years of the policy members will receive a lump sum payment up to $1,000 from the Kiwi Discount Club to offset the excess they would have to pay in the event of a claim.

After two years the savings made from the lower premium will go a long way to, or in many cases cover the $1,000 excess the member would have had to pay in the event of a claim

There is currently no fee to become a member of the Kiwi Discount Club
