Health Concierge provides personalised, preventative health assistance to help you prepare for, or recover from, a hospital stay or treatment. It’s our way of offering the extra support and care our members need, when they need it most, to help them get the best possible outcome.
We aim to help take the stress out of a new diagnosis, an ongoing condition, or an upcoming hospital stay. We’ll even check in with regular follow-up calls at key times during your health journey.
Any time you need clinical advice, we’ll connect you to our 24/7 Health Advice Line, or link you to services in the community and other Medibank programs.
We’ll provide practical tools and resources to help you manage your health day-to-day.
Right now we’re supporting members with the following health needs.
Members undergoing a ‘Total Hip’ or ‘Total Knee’ replacement.
Members undergoing certain procedures for the treatment of coronary heart disease such as stents, bypass surgery, valve replacement or who have suffered a heart attack.

Our Health Concierges are highly-skilled in providing exceptional support to people going through potentially stressful times. The service starts with a call from a Concierge, who’ll assess your circumstances and offer support that best suits your needs. Depending on the situation, the Concierge may follow up down the track to ensure you remain supported in your health journey.
