Green light for the proposal at first SGM – voting for the second SGM starts 

The Special General Meeting of Accuro members held in Wellington on 30 October has voted to support the Accuro board’s proposal to transfer the Accuro insurance portfolio and operations to Union Medical Benefits Society Ltd (UniMed). 

Accuro’s rules and the Industrial and Provident Societies Act 1908 require the proposal to now be confirmed by 75 percent of the members voting at a second SGM.  

As already notified, the second SGM will be held 2.30pm on Monday 20 November. We’ll be using the same voting process and members will be receiving details from  

If the proposal gets the required support at the second SGM, it will be referred to the Reserve Bank of New Zealand for final approval. 

The Accuro Board strongly believes combining the resources of the two organisations is the best way to respond to challenges in the health insurance market, deliver long term value to members, and create opportunities to improve and enhance services in the future.  

It’s important those who support the proposal take part in the next stage of the process and vote ‘Yes’ once again. 

Online voting for the next SGM is open from 1 November and members will be able to vote online, by proxy, or at the second SGM on 20 November. If you would like to attend the SGM, in person or virtually, and have not already registered, you can do that by emailing
