LEVERAGING THE COMBINED SCALE OF THE SECTOR
Our Collective Insurance team consistently negotiates the best insurance for all 20 District Health Boards (DHBs), through our insurance broker.
It offers insurers collective insurance for DHBs, including associated subsidiaries, allowing them to achieve a good spread of risk across the whole of New Zealand. This means DHBs benefit from substantial cover while paying a comparatively lower premium, which is significantly more effective than individual DHBs insuring themselves.
Working together means the sector can offer insurers a portfolio that is geographically spread with a high level of risk identification and management processes in place. Substantial cover is gained as a result from a comparatively lower premium, compared to if each DHB were to insure on an individual basis.
