Doctor Health Checks

What is it?

Just how healthy are you?

A regular check up with your GP to see how your blood pressure is, to monitor your waist line and more is all part of a good health regime, and we’re here to help.

For consultations not covered by Medicare, we’ll pay up to $150 per person per calendar year towards the cost.


How does it work?

Having health measures such as your blood pressure checked or your waist size properly monitored during a check-up with your GP is all part of a good health regime, especially if it’s done on a regular basis.

Let us help you keep those visits regular. We’ll give you up to $150 per person per calendar year on recognised health checks performed by a doctor in private practice where you are unable to claim through Medicare.

Are you eligible?
