Glossary of terms

Here’s a guide to assist you in understanding the meaning of the terminology used by CBHS.

  • Hospital Substitute Treatment (HST)

    CBHS now provides members the option to receive medical treatment in their home when approved by their doctor as being clinically appropriate.

    What does this mean?

    This means that you can receive specialised treatment from a private nurse, physiotherapist and occupational therapist in the comfort of your own home. Receiving these services at home may mean your hospital stay is shortened or you may be able to avoid a hospital admission altogether. Home based care services such as meals and domestic help is also available. All these services are available at no cost to CBHS members who have a hospital or packaged product and the medical services to be provided are an appropriate substitute for treatment that would be fully covered in a hospital under that product.

    Please contact CBHS to confirm if you are eligible.
