Health Support programs are designed to support eligible members in SA who are looking to improve the way they manage their condition(s) and overall health.
These programs can help you to manage chronic diseases including Coronary Artery Disease, Bone Health and Type 2 Diabetes, and can also include benefits for weight management and quit smoking programs, home sleep studies, plus gym and fitness programs, amongst others, on a range of Health Partners covers.
Health Partners Health Support programs include:
This program is designed to improve the wellbeing and management of patients diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
The program includes a customised plan with agreed goals provided with step-by-step clinical support. Care is provided in the comfort of your home by a registered nurse, nurse practitioner or qualified Diabetes educator, dependent on the level of care required.
This program is designed to mitigate the risks of falling and to improve confidence and balance in identified patients.
Support with balance and falls management is available through a customised plan delivered by a physiotherapist for eligible members.
Members suffering from chronic disease, complex health or mental health issues who require ongoing support can register for Health Coaching.
This service provides telephone-based information and support for self-management of these health conditions.
This program is for approved conditions or when medically necessary, at recognised providers, subject to eligibility requirements, which may include providing us with a letter from your medical practitioner.
Hospital to Home is designed to assist our members in various locations around Australia with care and recovery in the home, including options for rehabilitation and chemotherapy treatments at home.
Hospital at Home is a personalised service designed to make the transition from hospital to home quicker and easier for you.
If it’s appropriate, you may be able to leave hospital sooner after an operation and continue receiving the care and support you need in the comfort of your own home. By working with the hospital staff and your doctor, services including specialised nursing care and home help can be arranged to help you recover sooner at home.
In some situations, Hospital in the Home has helped members avoid re-hospitalisation.
All cases are individually reviewed by the hospital prior to your discharge to the care of your GP, with a care plan developed appropriate to your clinical needs.
Rehabilitation at Home provides an alternative to hospital-based rehabilitation.
Instead of staying in hospital for rehabilitation, you get a tailored therapy program that can be provided in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Your program, delivered by an experienced rehabilitation team, provides a short term therapy solution to help regain your independence and improve your quality of life.
Referral to the program is made by the staff of the hospital (this may be your doctor/specialist or discharge coordinator). This program is not available in all areas.
Chemotherapy at Home is a tailored program that provides home-based infusion therapy by highly trained and skilled nursing staff for specified cancer diagnoses and other inflammatory diseases.
Having ongoing infusion care in the comfort of your own home can provide eligible members with a convenient alternative to receiving treatment in hospital and reduced anxiety about associated travel costs, reliance on carers or child care, and exposure to infections.
Clinical eligibility criteria applies. Speak with your doctor to see if home chemotherapy is right for you or contact us for more information.
Pregnancy can mean the beginning of a new stage in your life – a stage that can bring joy, as well as some new challenges. You want to give yourself and your baby the best start to life in your family. At Health Partners, we want to support you during this time of change, which is why we’ve developed a program just for you.
Our Newborn Support Program provides you with ongoing support from the time you learn of your pregnancy through to the first 7 weeks of your baby’s life.
This program is available to Health Partners members with Gold Hospital.
