Bone Density Scan

What is it?

Osteoporosis is when bones become less dense, lose strength and break more easily due to calcium loss. A bone density scan measures bone density and will determine if any action is needed to improve your bone health.


How does it work?

Subject to eligibility criteria below, we’ll pay a benefit of up to 70% of the fee charged, up to $70 per person, once every five (5) calendar years towards a Bone Density Scan (DEXA), when you’re not eligible for a benefit under Medicare or covered by the free Federally funded screening program for Australians over 70 years of age.

Are you eligible?

To access the Bone Density Scan, you need to
