Preventative Care

As part of our commitment to your wellbeing, this benefit encourages the early detection of the most frequently diagnosed high-risk diseases. Early treatment reduces the risk of complications and is more likely to secure a better prognosis for the patient. This benefit provides cover for one consultation, pathology, radiology and vaccinations.

This benefit provides for the following vaccines:

  • Influenza
  • Human papilloma virus
  • Child immunisations
  • Pneumococcal infection.

Testing is covered for the following:

  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Late onset diabetes
  • Prostate cancer
  • Cardiac disease.

Pre-authorisation is not required, except in the case of mammography for women under 40 years. The Scheme’s pathology designated service providers must be utilised to avoid co-payments.
