A key aspect of the New Zealand health reforms was the proposed development of an explicit core of services to which all New Zealanders would have access.
A range of approaches has been taken by the government, its advisers, purchasers and providers to describe sets of servicers to which New Zealanders are to have access.
The development of an explicit core aims to promote equity of access to services, to ensure that those services available are those that are most cost-effective and the services New Zealanders feel to be the most important, and to clarify entitlements to publicly funded health care.
This paper describes the current approaches that are being used to define core services in New Zealand, discusses the reasons behind some of the choices made and notes some key issues for further policy debate.
