GMHBA understands that some people suffer from chronic diseases which can interfere with their ability to maintain optimal health and wellbeing.
To help members manage their conditions we have introduced a range of chronic disease management programs (CDMP’s).
GMHBA have arrangements with a number of providers to care for our members with chronic diseases.
Services include but are not limited to:
- Phone based health coaching, goal setting and monitoring

- Information and advice about managing and improving health
- Information and advice on identifying early warning signs of problems and how to manage these problems safely e.g. when to go to the GP or call the ambulance
- Plans to manage both the ongoing chronic and acute episodes of your disease
- Strategies and plans to help you take action before hospital admission becomes necessary
Who can use the CDMP Program?
- Members with any form of hospital cover may apply to participate in the program at no additional cost.
