Healthy Weight for Life

Support for chronic disease management. Life gets busy, but it’s always important to make time to look after your body. We’ve partnered with Healthy Weight For Life to give you extra support.

 

What is it?

A set of three programs, each designed to support you through a relevant condition and tailored to what you need - Type 2 Diabetes, Heart Health and Osteoarthritis Management.

 

Who’s it for?

If you’re a Westfund hospital cover member and have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease or Osteoarthritis, you’ll be able to take part.

Eligibility criteria

Each program is open to active, up to date Westfund members aged 18 or over. You must have held Hospital cover for at least the last 12 months and been medically diagnosed with either:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • A cardiovascular condition
  • X-ray diagnosed osteoarthritis of the knee or hip, which your GP feels could benefit from a weight loss and strengthening program. (Because your symptoms warrant a referral to an orthopaedic surgeon for an investigation or evaluation for a joint replacement, you’re preparing for a replacement, or you’re experiencing problems with an existing replacement.)

And have:

  • Have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 28
  • Are under medical supervision and have approval from a medical practitioner to participate
  • Have no allergies or intolerances to KicStart meal replacements
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding, or intending to become pregnant during the 18-week program
  • Are willing to provide personal and medical data
  • Have regular internet access and a personal email address

Members are eligible to register with Healthy Weight for Life once in their lifetime.
