Once you select a Medical Clinic that you will be comfortable with- the first step will be to register with that clinic as this will entitle the clinic to secure the appropriate subsidy for your visits.
On your first visit go a little early (say 15 minutes) so you can complete the registration forms.
If you want to change doctors then please discuss this with Body Positive and let us know of any concern you may have.
Visiting any other Medical Clinic may result in an additional fee which will not be covered by the scheme.
Body Positive does not wish to restrict members in being able to access their doctor of choice however in allowing this Body Positive has had to introduce a maximum consultation fee payable under the scheme of $40. If your doctor charges over this maximum, you will be required to pay this difference to the clinic directly.
Body Positive agrees to meet the consultation fee up to the predetermined ceiling limit of $40 for members visits to doctors. This does NOT include medical procedures, e.g. Skin Cancer Treatments, Vaccinations, Biopsies etc. Often an application to the Wellness Fund
may assist Members with these special medical expenses and a quote should be secured in the first instance and discussed with Body Positive.
