Advocating for Defence families

Defence Health supports families

Did you know at you can search for a doctor by name, by speciality, or by location?

The Healthshare directory can also identify doctors who have agreed to use Access Gap in the past. Access Gap helps to cut the cost of medical treatment for people going to hospital. When a doctor uses Access Gap, a privately insured patient will have either no, or a low, out-of-pocket expense for the in-hospital medical treatment.

Defence Health also has search engines for its network of dentists and optometrists, as well as a search function of general treatment providers (like physios, occupational therapists and speech pathologists) who are registered for on-the-spot claims.
