Introducing Health Concierge
Health Concierge provides personalised health support to help eligible Medibank hospital members prepare for, or recover from, a hospital stay or treatment.
We aim to help take the stress out of an upcoming hospital stay, a new diagnosis, or an ongoing condition. If requested, we can check in with regular follow-up calls at key times during your health journey.
Any time you need clinical advice, we can connect you to our 24/7 Medibank Nurse, or link you to services in the community or other Medibank programs.
We’ll provide practical tools and resources to help you manage your health day-to-day.
