New Zealand: Medical tourism profile
New Zealand has a mix of public and private hospitals, but public hospitals make up the majority, providing all emergency and intensive care. Private hospital patients with complications are often admitted to public hospitals, in which case the costs are absorbed by the public sector.
Medical tourism numbers in
Some sources say 600-850 overseas patients are treated in New Zealand, most from the Pacific Islands.
Medical tourism numbers out
Estimates suggest that 1,000 New Zealanders go overseas for treatment each year.
