Generally our service is provided free of charge. If you are a New Zealand citizen, or have residency in New Zealand, or hold a work permit valid for the next 2 years, you will not have to pay to use our community mental health service.
If you don’t meet the eligibility criteria for DHB funding, you may be able to pay to access assessment and treatment through a private service (which you may be able to receive some imbursement for from your insurance company).
If provisions of the Mental Health Act apply to your assessment, treatment or rehabilitation, you will not have to pay anything. If you have any concerns about your eligibility for health care, please contact Health Pasifika staff.
