Frequently asked questions

How does the program work?

This doctor-led and designed program offers an early-to-home discharge, where clinically appropriate, that is designed to provide members with more choice and transparency on affordable care options when undergoing a joint replacement at participating hospitals.

Eligible Medibank members may also have access to additional support before and after their surgery, such as pre-admission joint school, and options for in-home nursing care or rehabilitation with physiotherapy and other allied health support if their treating doctors considers it to be clinically appropriate and subject to the availability of at home care providers. Your participating surgeon will work with you to determine if this care is right for you. Contact your surgeon to find out more.
