We are delighted that from the beginning of December 2018, enrolled patients with a Community Services Card (CSC) are entitled to considerable discounts on medical consultations:
- An adult consultation or standard visit with a doctor or nurse will cost $18.50.
- Dependents aged 14 – 17 whose parent or caregiver holds a CSC will be charged $12.50.
Community Services Cards are administered by Work and Income on behalf of the Ministry of Health. Click here for eligibility criteria and application.
High Use Health Card (HUHC) discounts are unaffected by the change. Patients holding both a High User Health Card (HUHC*) and a CSC are entitled to the CSC discount.
*If you visit your doctor more than 12 times a year, ask about getting a High Use Health Card (HUHC). High Use Health Cards can be obtained via your GP who will have a record of your visits and will make an application to the Ministry of Health for you.
