A new way forward for knee and hip replacements

06 September, 2019

CBHS is now partnering with 360 Knee Systems (360KS), an orthopaedic technology group which specialises in supporting both patients and surgeons for total joint replacements.  We’re excited to offer this new service under our wider CBHS Hospital Substitute Treatment program (HST). Our HST can help members access more affordable surgery through savings on out-of-pocket expenses while reducing time in hospital.

Typically, one in five people are dissatisfied after traditional total knee replacement surgery and one in ten for total hip replacements. 360KS is 100% focused on improving the outcomes for people needing a total joint replacement, through a holistic approach, tailoring each and every case to the individual.

The key focus of the 360KS program is to get you back into the comfort of your home sooner, avoiding an extended period of time in hospital rehabilitation. Current research shows that there is no difference in outcomes following a total joint replacement if you return directly home after surgery.

The 360KS pathway starts with pre-rehabilitation (before surgery) to prepare you for surgery and help reduce your length of hospital stay. You will be paired with a physiotherapist who will tailor an exercise program to your individual needs.

The care before and after surgery is delivered via a combination of face-to-face and telemedicine (video) consults and is supported by daily monitoring. Every patient will be given a technology pack including an iPad and an activity monitor. Your step count, wound healing, exercise and pain levels will be closely monitored. The system provides real time feedback to your physiotherapist who will act immediately or escalate to your treating surgeon when results are not as expected.

The 360KS system currently caters to knee and hip replacements, with other procedures to come. A number of surgeons at certain hospitals are already taking part across Australia, with more locations rolling out over the coming months.

Surgeons taking part in 360KS may choose to participate in CBHS Access Gap Cover (AGC), a medical gap cover arrangement which can minimise or eliminate out-of-pocket expenses for your joint replacement surgery. Ask your specialist or practice manager if they will participate.

If you think you might be a candidate for a knee or hip replacement through 360KS, please contact wellness@cbhs.com.au or call us on 02 9685 7567 for more information. You’ll also need to hold an appropriate level of CBHS Hospital or package cover.

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
