Enrolment and First Visit
Enrolment is where you choose to make us your regular doctor. We arrange for your medical notes to be transferred from your previous doctor, along with the local health authority (PHO) funding.
The first visit for enrolling adult patients involves a preliminary health assessment with a nurse prior to your doctor’s appointment, usually taking 30 minutes. The first visit fee is $91 for adult patients without a CSC and $37 for a CSC holder. Subsequent visits will be at the subsidised rate, even though it may take several months for the funding to come through.
Not everyone is eligible for enrolment. The Ministry of Health website has a guide to eligibility criteria (www.moh.govt.nz/eligibility). The eligibility of non-New Zealand residents for publicly funded health care depends on their work visa status.
Non residents are charged a full fee of $91 for a standard doctor consultation, regardless of age.
