Zero fees for under 13s

The Fono now offers zero-fee GP visits for children under 13 as part of the Governments ‘zero fees’ scheme. Children under 13 will also no longer need to pay the $5 charge for each item of prescription medicine. 

The fees change is designed to improve access to healthcare for primary and intermediate school children, ensuring they can get the care they need when they need it and avoid possible complications and visits to hospital A&E departments.

The zero fees scheme applies to a standard daytime visit to your Fono GP or nurse. The zero fees for under 13s also applies to injuries covered by ACC.
