Health Check

Health Check

Melbourne Medical and Dental Clinic provides a range of preventative health services and health assessment’s based on each patient’s health care needs. The key aim of a health assessment is to provide a comprehensive overview of all aspects of your health and wellbeing. A health assessment can initiate extra assistance to maintain good health and prevent ill health in the future. Your doctor will always provide you with a written summary for you to keep so that over time you can monitor your progress towards achieving your stated goals.

Health Assessment’s include:

  • Healthy Kids 4 year old
  • Check Over 75’s Health Check
  • People aged 45 to 49 at risk of developing a chronic disease
  • People aged 40 to 49 with a high risk of developing type 2
  • Diabetes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health check
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Dept. Of Veteran’s Affairs
  • GP Management Plans and Team Care Arrangements
  • A General Practitioner Management Plan (GPMP) is a written plan to help you manage a chronic and/or complex condition, e.g. diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer.

As part of your plan, your doctor may identify that you could benefit from the assistance of other Health Care providers. A Team Care Arrangement involves a minimum of two other health care professionals who will provide ongoing services in addition to your doctor, e.g. physiotherapy, dietician, podiatrist.

If you are unsure if you qualify for a plan, please see you doctor. Medicare Australia has restrictions on who can and cannot receive management plans.
