Our Health Management Program is only available under Total Extras. These are medical treatments intended to manage a member’s specific health condition that’s been diagnosed by a registered medical practitioner, who is not a family member.
Examples of specific health conditions are asthma, arthritis, unhealthy BMI, high blood pressure and muscular skeletal disorders. Core strengthening, flexibility and wellness are not examples of a specific health condition.
There are strict legal requirements about what can, and cannot, be a Health Management Program under a health insurance product. For example, personal training to reduce an obese member’s BMI would likely be considered a Health Management Program, while a member with a healthy BMI (and no other specific health condition) would be ineligible to claim.
The treatments recognised by our Health Management Program are:
- Exercise physiology
- Quitting smoking
- Weight loss classes
- Exercise classes conducted at a gym or by a personal trainer
- Class physiotherapy
