Weight management programs and support
Weight loss surgery
Weight loss (bariatric) surgery is covered on high level policies. Check your level of cover or call our Member Care team on 1300 654 123 to find out if your policy includes weight loss surgery. Before surgery, check if the hospital has a contract with CBHS and make sure you ask for a written quote for transparency over all the costs, including any fees for all medical specialists involved.
Consult a dietitian
It’s worth consulting your GP or a professional dietitian if you’re considering making any radical changes to your diet. Some crash diets can limit the intake of certain food groups which won’t help your overall nutrition or health. Your CBHS Extras cover includes an allowance you can use for consults with a dietitian. Check your policy for details or view CBHS Extras cover.
Being more active and building strong muscles can help with weight management. Your CBHS Extras policy includes cover for gym memberships and/or personal training. Your GP will need to confirm that the membership is being used as part of a health management plan. Find out more by calling our Member Care team on 1300 654 123.
Health support at home
If you need help with your physical or mental health you might qualify for one of our Better Living programs. 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.
