Join our First Choice Network

The First Choice Network is a community of healthcare providers who have agreed to provide health services at a set fee to nib members, to ensure their experience is the same no matter who they see. As a registered First Choice Network provider, you agree to charge a set fee in return for having your services promoted to nib members. We continue to grow our network every day and are open for expressions of interest from dentists, physiotherapists and chiropractors.
