CBHS partners with SkinVision to provide digital skin checks at no cost for members

12 June, 2020
CBHS partners with SkinVision

COVID-19 is changing the healthcare system. While precautions have been in place to combat the spread of the virus, some skin cancer treatments and diagnoses have been delayed, as people have been too concerned to head out to their doctors. Now, more than ever, remote digital care is vital for the healthcare system to meet your needs while the nation is in recovery mode.

While skin cancer is not entirely preventable, routine checks are crucial for the early detection of skin cancer. If caught early, the chances of successful treatment are estimated to be as high as 95%.

CBHS has partnered with SkinVision to support members during this challenging COVID-19 time to ensure vital health checks like skin checks are not avoided. Right now, CBHS is offering access to the SkinVision digital phone app skin check for the next six months to ensure accurate, private and easy-to-use skin checks, from the comfort of your own home.

The SkinVision app can help identify the need to see a doctor in time for early treatment. Especially in the coming months, we mustn’t put other health needs on the backburner.

“We have one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world and this new app can offer the first line of defence,” says Craig Jones, Head of Clinical and Provider Relations at CBHS.

“This is a credible new technology, overseen by reputable dermatologists, that offers very real benefits. Two out of three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer before the age of 70, so we’re delighted to partner with SkinVision to bring our members the benefits of a significant advance in digital detection and prevention.”

Skin checks in the palm of your hand

You’ll need a smartphone with a camera. Then, simply download the app to get started. This is a brief look at how SkinVision works:

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.

What Our Members Think

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!

What Our Members Think

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.
