Can you afford not to have private health insurance for your heart?
9 in 10 Aussie have at least 1 risk factor of heart disease.
Whether you have to journey 30 or 300km, travelling for hospital treatment can take a toll physically, emotionally and financially – not only on you but on your loved ones too.
So, what can you do when the closest hospital to your home isn’t close at all?
To help make it easier and more affordable for our members to travel and get the treatment they need, we offer the following Health Management Programs* and offers through nib Rewards to help reduce travel and accommodation expenses.
This telephone-based service is available nationwide and can give you personalised support before going to hospital and after coming home from hospital. You'll be provided with access to an experienced registered nurse to help you understand and navigate the health service options available to you, covering both your short and longer-term health needs.
An evidence-based program, Rehab at Home provides intensive physiotherapy in the comfort of your own home following your total hip or knee replacement. The Rehab at Home program is available at selected locations only.
Specifically created for those over the age of 60 who’ve been hospitalised for a chronic disease or illness, this program includes a home visit and follow-up contact with a CareTransition coach to help get you back to your best health. CareTransition is available at selected locations only.
To find out if you’re eligible for any of our programs, or for more information, visit Health Management Programs.
