Southern Cross Member Benefits
It really does matter who is ‘with you’ when it comes to your health
MedPro Healthcare is proud to be partnering with Southern Cross Health Insurance to support New Zealanders to take control of their health. Starting October 2022, eligible adult policyholders will be able to receive a free annual health check with MedPro.
Why should you get an annual health check?
The Southern Cross Healthy Futures Report (2022) found that cost was once again the most common contributing factor in delaying seeking medical care. Even more so when we are not acutely unwell, with many New Zealanders also admitting that they don’t see regular check-ups as necessary.
Prevention is the best medicine and putting off going to the doctor increases the likelihood of poor health outcomes, high blood pressure, depression, and the development of chronic conditions. The 20-minute health and well-being check will include risk factor screening for two of the biggest causes of ill health in New Zealand; Diabetes and heart disease. Identifying risk factors of these conditions can help prevent them, and reduce the chance of serious consequences.
Let’s protect your health, together.
What is included in the Southern Cross member Health Check?
Your 20-minute health check will look at your personal health, family history, lifestyle, and biological risk factors for chronic conditions, namely diabetes and heart disease.
You will also get the opportunity to ask our registered nurses for advice about health concerns and what steps you can take to address these.
Where can I get a health check?
