SmartCare+

Your Health Plan For Life

Nothing is more important than your health.

Without your health, your lifestyle and earning ability can be impacted. Much of the emotional and financial burden of an illness can be avoided by protecting yourself and your loved ones with health insurance. 

Accuro’s SmartCare+ product is designed especially for those who require enhanced cover. SmartCare+ includes all the cover of SmartCare, as well as cover for non-PHARMAC subsidised drugs, medical tourism, an overseas waiting list benefit, an enhanced ACC top-up benefit and an increase in the bereavement grant, as part of the SmartCare+ Hospital and Surgical+ base plan.

 We have been providing our members with access to private medical treatment since 1971. For over 40 years, we’ve built up a wealth of experience and understanding of what New Zealanders really need. This is reflected in the marketleading flexibility of our SmartCare+ products.
