== UK/Australia/New Zealand Reciprocal Health Care Agreement ==

If you are an Australian or UK resident, certain forms of medical treatment are covered under a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement. For more information, please see the following page; http://www.health.govt.nz/new-zealand-health-system/eligibility-publicly-funded-health-services/reciprocal-health-agreements

I've enjoyed lunching with other LGBTIQ people at previous LCAs, and I hadn't seen anybody make any noises about it this year, so I'll stick my hand up and make some executive decisions. Last time I was at LCA, the success of lunch meant it had a few repeats during the week :)
  
'''Note:''' As not all medical treatment is covered under this agreement, it is still essential that all foreign visitors to New Zealand have adequate travel insurance to cover the duration of their stay.

NZs healthcare system is available for non residents, but you will probably have to pay. It is strongly advised that visitors obtain appropriate travel insurance, especially if you have ongoing medical issues.

I've enjoyed lunching with other LGBTIQ people at previous LCAs, and I hadn't seen anybody make any noises about it this year, so I'll stick my hand up and make some executive decisions. Last time I was at LCA, the success of lunch meant it had a few repeats during the week :)
