Kate Harpur, 18, started the campaign and has achieved over one hundred signatures in just a few days.
Harpur knows life with a disability having lived the majority of her life with Cerebral Palsy.
According to studies, the policy change would benefit over 17,000 physically and intellectually disabled in New Zealand.
Harpur says that free health visits would take just one of the burdens away from living life with a disability.
Harpur is also hoping to get in contact with her local National MP and is set to become another young charger in the rights for disabled conversation.
Harpur is a bright young woman who also has interests in sport, and she currently plays wheelchair basketball.
