Costs and registration

Find out how much it costs to use the services at Mauri Ora, including appointments with doctors and counsellors.

Students registered with Student Health receive free routine medical appointments. We recommend your register as soon as you can, and before your first appointment. You're eligible to register if you're a New Zealand citizen, a resident visa or permanent resident visa holder, or fall under another category listed on the second page of our enrolment form.

International students

Charges apply for international students, although costs may be covered by your insurance.

If you are an international student insured with the Studentsafe insurance scheme, Mauri Ora will bill the insurer directly for most of your visits, in accordance with your coverage.

Other insurance companies cannot be billed in this way, so you'll need to pay on the day of your appointment, and then claim reimbursement later from your insurer. If you're unsure if this applies to you, ask when you book your appointment.
