    Red face Medical - Epilepsey

    Hi, I have epilepsey and which is controlled by a drug which I get prescribed every month from my UK doctor. I have not had a seizure in years and years so the condition does not effect me any more.

    Will this effect my application? if not will I have to pay for my medication in NZ as in the Uk I dont have to?

    Any insight welcome thanks.

    I'm no medical expert, but I suspect that NZIS may want some additional info from your doctor, but I doubt that an easily controlled condition like epilepsy will disqualify you.

    I think they are more worried that the medication might be expensive. If it isn't, you should be fine. Some medications and treatments are horrendously expensive. It all comes down to the cost to the health service.
