To use HealthNow, first you will need to sign up. Once you have signed up, you will be able to find a HealthNow approved site through our ‘Find Health’ function.
All you need to do now is get the healthcare you need, tell the health providing site that you would like to pay with HealthNow and progress through the transaction process with the staff member at the point of sale.
You can find HealthNow approved sites on our map function. Our HealthNow approved sites are represented by our HealthNow logo and will contain additional information our merchants sites provide us for you to access
On our map function, you will also find other locations that are not yet HealthNow approved, this is to ensure you can find and access the health you need when you need it.
As a HealthNow user, you will receive an initial breakdown of your payments at the time of transaction and reminders about your upcoming payment before it is due via email and a notification. We also provide you a 24 hour grace period to resolve any missing payments should they occur. If you miss a payment after the 24 hour grace period, we will apply a $7 late payment penalty and provide you an additional 6 days to resolve the outstanding debt. If it is still outstanding after 6 days, we will apply a further $7 penalty.
100% of revenue from late payments is applied to our research and development to reduce future late payments and ensure that we generate the funds necessary to cover the businesses cost of funding, ensuring that HealthNow is able to continue to make healthcare accessible into the future.

HealthNow is constantly working with merchants to bring them on as HealthNow approved sites. If you have a specific site that you would like to use HealthNow at, we would love to hear about it at Feedback@healthnow.co.nz. We will go and approach them individually as soon as possible to see if they are interested in filling your request.
The best thing you can do to get more merchants in your area is to tell us who you would like to see using HealthNow and tell the merchant about us. A good organisation listens to its customers.
As per our T’s and C’s. All refunds that are processed for a purchase made using HealthNow must be processed back through HealthNow. This is a requirement set by our banking partners to mitigate any AML risk.
In an event where you need to process a refund, you will follow the normative refund process of contacting the merchant to request a refund.
You will then need to contact your refund support team at Help@healthnow.co.nz ensuring that you complete the form in its entirety so we can find your service and contact the service provider to request the refund of funds we have paid to the service provider to return them to you.
HealthNow is NOT the issuer of the treatment or product and is unable to process a refund to you as an end-user before the merchant has refunded us.
In the event that a merchant breaches their merchant terms and does provide you with a direct refund, your obligations to pay HealthNow will continue till the amount owed to HealthNow is restored in full.
You can update your card attached to your account via your account settings tab under settings. All you need to do is update your card with a valid card and our system will do the rest.
Note that if you update a card in the middle of a transaction process, all transactions that are due will be conducted off the card that was attached at the time of transaction unless you manually pay off all outstanding amounts manually through the pay now function.
Alternatively if you do not want any more payments to come out of your previous card you can manually pay for any remaining instalments with a updated card on the payments page.
