A new initiative by the Government has been announced, stating that all children under the age of 13 will receive free doctor visits.
The initiative was designed to help improved the health of New Zealand’s young people.
More than 400,000 primary school-aged children are expected to benefit from this project, which will cost $90 million over 3 years.
Starting from July next year, children under the age of 13 will be able to see a doctor for free, as well as free prescriptions as well.

  1. i’m turning 13 at the end of this year so I wont be able to have free doctor visits.
    but that would make a big different in new Zealand for children under 13 ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. well its nice but it would be a shame for people over 13, lucky for the other children, but I thought that maybe a little higher of the ages and July next year is a little to long ๐Ÿ˜€

    I think it will DEFINITELY Work out well.
