Women's health programs and support
Regular health checks
If you have CBHS Extras or packaged cover, you’re eligible for generous benefits on health checks and health management services. These are part of our promise to deliver great value while helping you achieve wellbeing and fitness. Health checks include breast exams, bone density tests, skin cancer screening, bowel cancer screening and eye screenings.
Hospital in the home
If you’re keen to shorten any hospital stay or even avoid hospital altogether, you may be eligible for our CBHS Hospital in the Home service. Depending on your circumstances, the program may include a combination of nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, personal care or home support. There’s no cost if the medical services are an appropriate substitute for treatment that would be fully covered in hospital under your Hospital or packaged cover. Read more about our Hospital Substitute Treatment program.

The CBHS Better Living program can help you deal with the challenges of chronic disease. You receive on-going support and one-on-one coaching from a team of health professionals, including dieticians, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and mental health clinicians.
