Get more out of your health insurance

It’s a few months into the new financial year, and a good time to start thinking about getting more out of your private health insurance policy.

It’s a few months into the new financial year, and a good time to start thinking about getting more out of your private health insurance policy.

At the Newmason medical centre you can use your private health insurance to access a range of allied health services, from podiatry to physiotherapy.

A podiatrist can help you to manage foot, ankle and lower limb problems related to injury, illness, disease or a disability.

They can also educate you on caring for your feet if you have been diagnosed with diabetes, or help you to manage the effects of diabetes complications such as wounds and poor blood supply.

If you have an injury, illness or disability or are recovering from surgery, seeing our physiotherapists may help with restoring proper function to your body while reducing the risk of injuries.

As the new year approaches and you start thinking about making health resolutions, you could also consider seeing a dietician to get expert advice on improving your eating habits.

A dietitian can provide you with advice on improving your wellbeing using food and nutrition.

They can also help you manage diabetes, maintain a healthy weight and provide advice if you have coeliac disease, are a vegetarian, need to stick to a food budget or just want to feel healthier.

To find out more about allied health services from Latrobe Community Health Service, phone 1800 242 696 or visit www.lchs.com.au/locations/warragul.

Be sure to check with your private health insurer to see if these services are covered under your individual policy.
