Community Services Card
A Community Services Card reduces doctors' fees, prescription charges and hospital costs and can save you a lot of money. Up to 90% of students qualify for a Community Services Card. Eligibility is judged on your (not your parents') income.
The scheme is administered by Work and Income and is available only to Permanent New Zealand Residents and New Zealand Citizens.
Phone 0800 999 999 or visit Work and Income - Community Services Card for more information about eligibility, to download an application form or to request an application form by post.
Application forms are also available from Student Health reception or from Work and Income service centres.
