You get unlimited managed consultations with a network doctor. Your doctor might also prescribe medication, refer you to a specialist, get blood tests and x-rays or perform minor procedures in their rooms.
The Day-to-Day collection of benefits has cover for all of this and more.
The GP Visits benefit is all about getting you access to a private network doctor when you need it. It covers:
The benefit is unlimited which means you may use it as often as is medically necessary. We believe primary care is the gateway to good health so we want you to see a doctor when you need to and avoid letting small concerns turning into serious problems.
These are procedures that a general practitioner may perform in their consulting rooms and includes things like stitches, limb casts, ingrown toenails, clamp circumcision, abscess drainage and nebulisation.
The full list of procedures is not published by the product administrator because it is extensive and is constantly updated as medical procedures change.
Yes. Your doctor may prescribe medication. The Medication Benefit is part of the Day-to-Day plan and will cover unlimited formulary medication as well as Over-the-Counter medication.
What is useful to note is that you get dispensing and scripting doctors:
Your doctor may need x-rays or blood tests to be taken. These are covered under the Radiology and Pathology benefits which are also part of the Day-to-Day Plan.

When a health insurance benefit is "unlimited" it means that the benefit can be used as many times as you need without any specific annual limits.
The only conditions are that the claim or consultation is medically necessary.
Unlimited benefits are usually managed. This means that pre-authorisation is needed after a certain number of times that the benefit is used to ensure that it is you utilising the benefit and that you are getting the proper care that you deserve. You can find more details on the Network page.
The waiting period on the GP Benefit is 1 month.
This means that after the first month of your policy's inception, you can use the benefit and visit a network doctor.
