Why Choose UniMed?

Unlike some health insurers we are not particularly well known. That’s because we prefer to focus on looking after our members, group schemes and business partners rather than talking about what we do.

It’s with the support of our members that we have been able to:

  • Offer a range of competitive and affordable health insurance plans,
  • Pay claims fairly and promptly,
  • Become one of the largest health insurers for employer schemes in New Zealand,
  • Continue to provide health insurance to New Zealanders for more than 30 years,
  • Achieve a strong financial position with an A (Excellent) Financial Strength Rating from AM Best.

It’s our members you should listen to because they can best explain why you should consider UniMed as your health insurer.

Here’s what they said:

quotemarksPlease accept my heart-felt thanks for the excellent service you provide to your customers. Your prompt service with understanding helped me tremendously in reducing the anxiety and stress of the surgery.

quotemarksI would like to pass on my sincere gratitude to your staff for treating me like a valued customer rather than a number. I truly felt your staff had taken my specific circumstances into account (which I wasn’t expecting), and went in to bat for me, which has clearly been the case with such an excellent outcome.

quotemarksMany thanks for prompt response – markedly better than a number of other companies.

Many, many thanks for your patience, understanding and time you have given us during this process. We have appreciated you ALOT.

I wish all of the other Insurance companies were as great to deal with.

While no-one wants to be a high user of medical insurance, I am very aware that is what I am and I am very grateful to UniMed for continuing to meet my medical costs.
