Westfund and OnePointHealth join forces to improve access to health care services
Westfund Health Insurance has announced a new partnership with OnePointHealth to bring in-person and telehealth dietetics services to Westfund members. This new agreement will bring an accredited OnePointHealth dietitian to Westfund's Dental Centre in Lithgow for in-person appointments at least once a month, with the ability to scale based on member demand. The availability of telehealth dietetic services also allows those unable to attend in-person consultations in Lithgow to benefit from the services and are available across the week, from Monday - Saturday.
Bookings will be available via Westfund's Health Co-op and are available to members and the broader community. Westfund members will also receive a special member's price for all of OnePointHealth services, whether they're delivered at a Westfund centre, online or at one of OnePointHealth's eight locations across New South Wales. Dietetics consultations are available with claimable benefits available across all Westfund Extras covers (waiting periods and limits apply).
OnePointHealth's accredited Dietitians provide personalised nutrition and dietary advice to not just treat medical and chronic health conditions, but also help patients reach their health or fitness goals, such as increasing muscle mass, assisting in weight loss, improving energy levels and the nutritional status of vegetarians or vegans.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Westfund to deliver sought after healthcare services in regional areas. OnePointHealth and Westfund share similar values and community contributions which will enable this partnership to build from a solid foundation, ensuring the highest level of healthcare is available to people in regional as well as metro areas," said OnePointHealth Chief Executive Officer Michael Todd.
Our reach from Sydney metro through Western Sydney right through the Blue Mountains ensures a corridor of support available. We are excited to start with Dietetics and will continue to grow the array of services on offer as this exciting partnership grows."
Westfund's partnership with OnePointHealth is another example of how Westfund is working to tackle the regional health gap and provide access to great value healthcare for members - no matter where they live.
At Westfund, we're about more than just healthcare. We are committed to paving the way for a healthier future for our members by promoting preventive measures and healthy lifestyles.
As Anna Maltabarow, our Chief Customer Officer, puts it, "By making accredited dietitians accessible, we're taking a significant step towards achieving our goal. We believe that by helping our members make informed dietary choices, we can truly make a difference in their overall health and wellbeing."
