Accuro appoints new chairman

The new chairman of Accuro says the government should introduce a scheme like KiwiSaver for health insurance.

Tuesday, April 22nd 2014, 6:18AM

Auckland lawyer, Jane Bawden, who works in the health sector, has recently been appointed chairman of Accuro Health Insurance.

She is is encouraging people to start early and consider health insurance before age related conditions set in.

“Many young people enjoy their sport but don’t think ahead to the natural wear and tear on the bodies,” she says. So many young people are living lives to the full that they need to be covered when problems set in."

Bawden became a company solicitor and risk manager for Auckland DHB 20 years ago and has been “hooked on health” ever since. Because one of her children has a profound disability, she has a personal understanding of the complex nature of treatment and care.

She says Accuro focuses solely on health insurance so it can respond quickly and effectively to trends and policies within the industry and maintain a close relationship with our members.

Bawden is aware of the challenge to government to meet the provisions of elective surgery within reasonable timeframes and sees an urgent need for ongoing dialogue between the government and private health providers.

She believes a system similar to KiwiSaver should be introduced which would offer flexibility in health care and she’d like the government to establish a climate of support for people to provide for their long term health needs.

“It’s important to have autonomy over our own health and access to health care at a time when we feel it’s appropriate for us,” she says.
