Southern Cross Health Society

Southern Cross Health Society

Southern Cross Health Insurance has been supporting New Zealanders on their health journeys since 1961. We are New Zealand’s largest health insurer with 62% of the market and over 920,000 members. In FY22 we paid over 70% of the value of all health insurance claims. Over the last five years, for every dollar of premiums earned, we’ve paid 86 cents in claims for our members.

Our not for profit status means that we are a social enterprise at heart, and our values-driven approach ensures the needs of our members are always front of mind. Our purpose is to empower our members to live well for longer, to actively support members to thrive with healthier years in their life. Along with our subsidiary businesses Southern Cross Pet Insurance and Southern Cross Travel Insurance, we are committed to being responsible and community-minded businesses. We strive to actively promote health and wellness, equality, and diversity and inclusion. We care for our planet by actively contributing to a sustainable future, and we partner with others to make a positive impact on Aotearoa New Zealand.
