Hearing Association manager Elaine Turner has this advice. A recent case in Auckland has exposed a dubious practice occurring in New Zealand insurance circles in the replace- ment of hearing aids. One of our patients phoned us recently distressed after having been told by his insurance company that he had to go to the insurer's preferred supplier' for replacement hear- ing aids. A call to his insurer con- firmed it. However, the insurer stated that he could use the Hearing Association for his replacements. Our patient says he was not offered this option and seemed to be coerced into using another provider. Under the Health and Dis- ability Code relating to the pro- vision of treatment by a health professional, the patient has the right to choose their treat- ment provider. The Ethics Guideline Committee of the NZ Audiology Society has provided clarification on this issue. Legal advice was sort by the NZ Audiology Ethics Com- mittee and Chris Boyes of Arm- strong Law advised that if the insurance claim relates to the provision of treatment by a health professional, then the Health and Disability Code applies. The consumer has the right to choose their provider. The Audiology Society will send a letter to all insurance companies advising them that the provision of hearing aids is a treatment and that it is inap- propriate for them to operate a preferred provider' policy. The Hearing Association is a registered charity helping those with hearing impairment. We could be considered the watchdogs in the industry as we have been for over 78 years.

Ten things you can do to live longer New Zealand-owned life insurance and invest- ment company Fidelity Life knows all about the value of life and has some advice for Kiwis to add to their list of New Year's resolutions to help achieve longevity. Fidelity Life chief executive Milton Jen- nings says January is the perfect time to break bad habits and start leading a healthy life, which goes a long way to ensure you can be around for a bit longer. According to the Min- istry of Development's 2010 Social Report, the life expectancy in New Zealand for males is 78.4 years and females 82.4 years, but many of us are cutting this short by not looking after our health. As a life insurance company, we know first- hand what Kiwi families are faced with when they lose a loved one, or a family member becomes ill and can no longer work,'' says Mr Jennings. Illness, or the death of a family member, is a hugely emotional time; people are often left with the additional stress of dealing with issues such as mounting debts to cover medical costs, the forced sale of the family home, and having to use diminishing savings to cover living expenses.'' Cancer accounted for the majority of death and terminal illness claims for Fidelity Life customers in the 12 months ended 30 June 2010, at 39 percent. This was followed by heart disease (30 percent), ill- ness (20 percent), acci- dent (6 percent) and suicide (5 percent). The average age of claimant's was 56, well below New Zealand's life expectancy for both genders. There are a number of little things we can all be doing more of each day to help reduce the risk of getting sick to ensure we can be around for our family for as long as possible,'' says Mr Jen- nings. 10 things you can do to live longer 1.Don't smoke: The Cancer Society estimates that 23 percent of all New Zealand cancer deaths annually are due to smoking. 2. Drink alcohol in moderation or not at all. 3. Drink water: Drinking six tom eight glasses a day helps your body function properly. 4. Exercise: This is essential for heart health and body strength and is also a great stress relief. 5. Sleep: Between seven and nine hours of sleep a night is generally recom- mended. 6. Relax and laugh: Laughing is a great stress relief. 7. Get regular check ups: Early detection is the key for so many illnesses. 8. Teeth: Brush and floss your teeth daily to avoid gum disease which can place risks on your overall health. 9. Eat more fruit and vege: Fruit and vege- tables are a great source of fibre and antioxidants. 10. Socialise: Research shows people with strong social networks and who spend quality time with family and friends are more likely to live longer than people who are lonely.
