Get your health on track with a veteran health plan
- For eligible gold and white card holders
What is a veteran health plan?
Just like you might take your car for
regular service, having regular check-ins with health professionals can identify where issues might arise before they become more urgent.
The aim of a veteran health plan is for a nurse to assist you with identifying key health-related areas that could be at risk if they remain unaddressed and they then assist you to access trusted service providers to help you manage and prevent the need for more urgent care.
It is essentially the ounce of prevention vs. the pound of cure.
This is simple and easy and takes only 30minutes with a veteran health specialist.
Why Do I Need A Health Check? I’m Not Sick!
Just like when you get regular checkups at the dentist the Veteran Health Check is a proactive approach to your healthcare. This is a way of mitigating the issues and
preventing you from getting sick.
Basically, we use a Health Check as a way to try and avoid finding ourselves in crisis. It helps you to build long term relationships with a variety of health care providers, who can work
together to act as a safety net and support you in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
What do I receive as part of the health plan?
When you have an assessment you will be guided to a range of services that they will assist you in accessing.
These can include:
Allied health, such as:button
