Our responsibilities regarding health costs

While inpatient hospital care is free to all New Zealanders, there are a range of circumstances where the patient or child is expected to make a contribution or to meet the cost of the health service.

This resource outlines which health related charges should be met by Oranga Tamariki and which are the responsibility of the caregiver or residence.
