From Morning Report, 7:55 am on 6 March 2018

An Auckland iwi is planning to provide free health insurance for its tribal members, saying it's taking the step because the region's health system is at breaking point. Ngati Whatua Orakei will give the insurance cover to 4,000 of its registered members using the private health and medical insurance provider NiB. Marama Royal is the chairperson of Ngati Whatua Orakei. She talks to Susie Ferguson.
