How can MAS help?
How can MAS help?
This month we wanted to step back from the more detailed advice we usually provide through HealthyPractice and take a look at how MAS can help you and your practice more generally.
Insuring what matters most
You probably already know that MAS provides Business Risks insurance to protect your practice. We also provide insurance to cover your house and contents, life, income and disability, cars and boats, and we have won the Consumer People’s Choice award three years in a row for house, contents, car and life insurance.
You can find out more about our insurance products at https://www.mas.co.nz/insurance/
Our MAS KiwiSaver plan is available to practice staff and you can find our more about making MAS your preferred provider at https://www.mas.co.nz/resources/investment-resources/kiwisaver-business-owners/
MAS has a responsible investment policy for both its KiwiSaver and Retirement savings products. This means we don’t invest in companies whose principal business activity is
- The manufacture and sale of armaments
- The manufacture and sale of tobacco
- The exploration, extraction, refining or processing of fossil fuels or who are utilities that burn them.

Helping our new to NZ Members
If you have contractors or employees who are new to NZ, or are thinking about moving to New Zealand, we’ve put together some useful information, tips and links to important websites at our Moving to NZ page https://www.mas.co.nz/moving-to-new-zealand/.
Here for Good
MAS was founded by doctors, for doctors almost 100 years ago. From the start, the aim was to advise and support Members financially – helping them do their own good work in the communities in which they were based – and that work continues to this day.
We’re currently working on playing a greater role in funding high-impact health research, promotion and education in NZ through the establishment of the MAS Foundation. The Foundation is still in the process of being established but we’ll have more to share about its strategy in the near future.
If you have any questions about the additional support MAS might be able to offer you or your colleagues, you can call us on 0800 800 627 or email email@example.com

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced an enormous number of changes on the way we all live and work within a very short time. It hasn’t been easy and a full economic and social recovery may take years. But for many individuals and workplaces, the lockdown also provides an opportunity to review the way they work and reassess their options for when things get back to some sort of normality.

Most of the country heaved a collective sigh of relief at the news that we are moving to Level 2 from 11.59pm tonight. At Level 2 we would expect that all our practices will be open, perhaps not at their pre-Covid level, but they will be seeing patients and clients.

While our subscribers who were classified as essential services during Level 4 will have developed processes to deliver their services under the Covid 19 restrictions, moving to level 3 takes the focus off essential and moves to ‘safe’.
