What dental treatments does WINZ cover?
Depending on your level of income and the necessity of the treatment, WINZ may be able to offer full or partial coverage for dental work. For urgent dental treatment, WINZ will generally pay up to NZ$300, however further assistance may be available depending on the individual situation.
It’s also important to be aware that WINZ rarely make more than one payment for urgent dental work within a single year. However, should you require emergency treatment, you may also seek coverage and assistance through ACC if you experienced damage as the result of an accident.
