Medibank at Home

Shaping the future of care.

Medibank at Home is a group of trial programs that bring hospital care into our members' homes and provides them with choice over where they receive their treatment. For any enquiries about the program, including eligibility and program availability, contact the Medibank Member Health Programs Line between 9am and 5pm AEST weekdays.

Rehab at home program now available nationally

After a successful trial we can now offer all eligible members this program.~ In consultation with your treating doctor, you could have your rehabilitation after either partial or total hip or knee joint replacement surgery at home. Hear from member Ken about his experience receiving treatment through the rehab at home program.

What programs are we trialling?

When it comes to care, be it recovery or treatment, we believe that every person deserves to choose where they receive it, where clinically appropriate. We're hoping that early encouraging results in these trials will lead to a national roll-out, providing more eligible Medibank members with the choice to receive care where they want it. Read more about our progress below.

Chemotherapy at home trial

We’re giving eligible members in VIC, WA, SA, QLD metro and NSW metro greater choice and flexibility through our chemotherapy in the home trial.

This program removes the need for additional frequent trips to hospital for this treatment and increases comfort levels for members going through an extremely difficult time.

Palliative care at home trial

Many Australians say they would prefer to die at home. By partnering with specialist palliative care providers in various locations around Australia, we are giving eligible customers and their families the choice to receive end-of-life care and support in the comfort and familiarity of their own home.  

Haemodialysis at home trial

Medibank members with chronic kidney disease spend an average of 4-6 hours in hospital, 3-4 times per week.

We’re bringing this treatment into the comfort of their own home to ease the burden on the members and their carers.
