Does Medicare offer rebates for this HealthCheck?
Medicare rebates are not normally available for health screening.
Does Private Health Insurance cover any costs of the HealthCheck?
Some insurers offer limited coverage depending on the level of extras you may have. If you have 'health screening' as an extra, you may be entitled to claim a portion of the costs. It is recommended to check this with your provider.
How long will my appointment take?
The program starts early as you will need to arrive fasting. The initial health screening tests are conducted at NIIM from approximately 8.00am to 1.30pm. The Premium level requires a medical imaging appointment conducted at a nearby facility in Hawthorn. The final results appointment takes place at NIIM approximately four weeks after completion of all screening tests.
