Telehealth Services and Online Gym Memberships
With the impacts of COVID-19, we expanded our telehealth consultations to include a much wider selection of providers and with the closure/restrictions on gyms, we added the ability to claim online gym memberships as part of our Healthy Living benefit. We will be continuing both of these options to further support our Members. Further details on these benefits is listed below.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is the use of current technologies to exchange health information and provide health care services. It gives Members the opportunity to attend appointments with certain healthcare professionals over the phone or via video call technology such as FaceTime or Skype.
Queensland Country Health Fund will pay the standard consultation benefits for telehealth for:
- Speech Therapy
- Exercise Physiology
- Occupational Therapy
- Orthoptic Therapy
- Childbirth Education
Online Gym Membership
As well as helping you to get well, we want to help you stay well. With the impacts of COVID-19, following the closure of gyms and the introduction of social distancing we received Member feedback of the growing importance of online gyms. Our Healthy Living benefit helps you live a healthy lifestyle and in response, Members can now claim their online gym membership as part of the Healthy Living benefit. The criteria below must still be met:
- You must have been referred by your health care professional to participate in a health management program to address, improve or prevent a specific health or medical condition.
- A Health Management Program Benefit Approval Form must accompany a claim for these benefits. The form must be completed by a Health Care professional electronically if you are unable to attend their practice
- Online Gym Memberships must have a registered ABN.
- An approved receipt including your name, date and description of service, total fee charged and provider name and address.
- Benefit payable subject to overall benefit limit.
