Mather Nicholson Insurance Brokers Ltd trading as SHARE based in Wellington were recently successful in getting a better outcome for their client. Their client is a professional woman aged 55 years who had renal cancer in 1993. Despite her Dr/Specialist saying she had no more chance of getting cancer again than anyone else, insurers repeatedly gave her a cancer exclusion on her trauma cover.

Mather Nicholson attempted every year to review, given how long ago the cancer was, and this year they have finally been succesful. They decided to not only ask the existing insurer to review yet again, but also went out to another insurer to see if they could get a better outcome, and finally they did.

The other insurer offered cancer with an exclusion for renal solid tumour only, and the point here is to never give up on trying to get a better outcome for your client.  They are all delighted and needless to say so is she.

SHARE say you can insure almost anything under the sun, but certain things absolutely need to be properly insured, and this typically includes your life, your health, and your property. While you want to ensure that you're adequately protected, there are a lot of insurance policies that are unnecessary for most people. Purchasing the wrong insurance, or simply spending too much on insurance can do more harm than good. The question is: which insurance policy will cater for your needs?

SHARE advisers have experienced nearly every scenario imaginable, and collectively, they have a wealth of knowledge and it is this knowledge and experience they want to share with you, so you don’t end up paying for a policy you don’t need, so for more information on health insurance New Zealand, best Kiwisaver providers and retirement planning please go to .
