The COACH Program

The COACH Program

The COACH Program is a 6 month, over-the-phone program that can help you manage and recover from heart disease. It’s run by our friends at NPS MedicineWise, who’ve been helping people get healthy for 18 years.

Who will it help?
This program will help you if you’ve got (or had):
  • coronary heart disease
  • a stroke or mini stroke (TIA)
  • peripheral vascular disease
  • heart failure
  • a high risk of cardiovascular disease
  • type 2 diabetes (or have a high risk of getting it)
  • prediabetes
  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

How will it help?
Guided by some of the top-dogs in heart health (like The National Heart Foundation of Australia and the Cardiac Society of Australia & New Zealand), The COACH Program will help you:

  • manage your medications
  • get to your cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose level goals
  • reach and keep a healthy weight
  • up your daily activity level
  • quit smoking
  • find the right diet to manage your heart disease
Who’ll have access to my personal info?
We won’t have any access to the personal health info you give to NPS MedicineWise. If you’d like to read our Privacy Policy to make sure, click here.

Will it make my cover cost more?
Not at all. It’s completely separate to your health cover – we just pay the bill.
