Sometimes going to hospital is unavoidable, but if you do have to go, the last thing you want to do is stay longer than you need to.
To help you get back home as soon as possible, GMHBA offers eligible hospital policy holders access to its Hospital in the Home (HITH)5 and Rehabilitation in the Home (RITH) programs6.
HITH offers an alternative to an in hospital stay for eligible patients. If you take part in a HITH program you will be provided with the appropriate rehabilitation healthcare, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, dietetics, speech pathology, nursing and home support if required.
RITH allows eligible patients to undertake all or part of their rehabilitation in the comfort and privacy of their own home. As part of the RITH program, GMHBA will make sure the home is safe and provide a treatment program to help restore strength and mobility.
For customers living in the Greater Geelong area in Victoria, CCS organises care for eligible members with complicated health problems7. It doesn’t matter what level of hospital cover you hold, GMHBA’s care coordination service can provide you with support, information and access to health services, at no extra cost.
CDMP provides eligible members who suffer from chronic diseases with the care and support they need to maintain optimal health8.
Services include phone-based coaching and monitoring, care coordination, and devising strategies to help delay or avoid hospital admission if possible.
Typically, most Extras claims can be processed when you have your appointment with your GMHBA membership card.
Keep in mind that claiming through GMHBA works differently depending on whether you’re claiming for Extras provider costs9, Hospital costs10, or medical (doctor or specialists costs in hospital) costs11.
