Taking control of your health

Just under half of Australians have one or more chronic conditions. If you’re one of them, you may have found that managing physical and/or mental health conditions can be challenging.

We help eligible Teachers Health members with chronic conditions and risk factors of disease by providing access to a range of support services*. Your personal care coordinator will work with you to understand where you’re at and support you in achieving your health goals.

Managing health conditions

Depending on your needs and goals, personalised support may be available via face-to-face, phone or video-based programs which aim to help you manage these chronic conditions:

Arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions

Monitor and manage triggers, symptoms, medications and exacerbations, and achieve and maintain a nutritious diet and exercise plan.



Support for members who are having or have recently completed cancer treatment, and those living with advanced cancer to help manage symptoms and optimise quality of life.

Accessing the programs

Eligibility for programs varies, but you need to be aged 18 years or over, have Hospital cover and have served any waiting periods*.

We must also:

  • consider your health condition, your safety and what's likely to work best for you personally
  • work within government legislation to fund these services (through what's called Broader Health Cover).

The Healthcare Services team can talk to you about other eligibility criteria applicable for individual services.
