Preparing and recovering from hospital
It’s no doubt that going to hospital or starting medical treatment can be a stressful time – so it’s important that you feel as prepared as possible.
If you are a Medibank member and going to hospital for a specific procedure you may be able to access Health Concierge, a service that provides members personalised assistance, extra support and care when it’s needed most.
Medibank’s Health Concierge aims to help take the stress out of a diagnosis, an ongoing condition, or an upcoming hospital stay. It starts with a call from a Concierge – skilled in providing exceptional support to people in a range of circumstances – who can assess your circumstances and offer support that best suits your needs.
