What’s the Healthy Lifestyle benefit?
It’s an Extras benefit that can help to cover the cost of health management programs for specific conditions. Eligible members could claim for:
- Weight management programs (e.g. Weight Watchers, CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet)
- Gym membership, or other approved training programs
- Preventive health checks, if you can’t claim them through Medicare (e.g. mammograms, skin or bowel cancer screenings)
- Disease management subscriptions, to access support services from a relevant association (e.g. Diabetes Australia).
