The Ministry is scoping the introduction of an annual health check (including eye check) for SuperGold Card holders.
Budget 2018 includes a one-off contribution to develop and scope options for providing one free annual health check to card holders (approximately 723,000 New Zealanders). This scoping will be undertaken by the Ministry of Health in 2018/19.
No further information about the check or anticipated start dates are available at this time.
The SuperGold Card is a concessions card for seniors and veterans – visit the SuperGold Card website to find out more.
