Medibank's Chemotherapy at Home

Working towards more choice over where you get your treatment.

Medibank's at Home chemotherapy program resides within Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales metro and Queensland metro to give members greater choice over where they receive their cancer treatment.

Who is eligible?

To take part, members must have hospital insurance that includes chemotherapy services and served all relevant waiting periods*, and their treating doctor must consider it appropriate for them. Medibank funds the services which are delivered by qualified and experienced service providers.

Emotional benefits of chemotherapy in the home:

We’re exploring different ways of providing our members with greater choice and increased flexibility by offering chemotherapy in the comfort and familiar surroundings of their own home. They benefit from:

  • Being closer to their family or support network 
  • Increased privacy 
  • Reduced time costs associated with travel, waiting and discharge.

Many of the program’s participants report that being able to continue with activities of daily life helps them feel more ‘normal’.

A view to expand

Medibank at Home Chemotherapy program has already expanded from Perth, to South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales metro and Queensland metro. We’re hoping that early encouraging results will lead to a national roll-out, providing more Medibank members with the choice to receive care where they most want it.
