National Australian Defence Force Family Health Program
The National ADF Family Health Program commenced on 1st January 2014. Dependants of permanent ADF members and dependants of Reservists on Continuous Full Time Service can register for the Program. ADF Dependants must be listed in the Dependant / Beneficiary section of PMKeyS.
The allied health and specialist component can be used towards non-cosmetic and non-GST allied health services and/or used to offset the gap for Medicare recognised specialist services. Allied health vocational groups included in the Program are listed on the ADF Family Health Website. The allocation is to the family unit and is pro rated dependant on family size. The member is responsible for choosing what allied health or specialist services, and which family members the allocation is used towards. The allocation is per financial year and cannot be rolled over from one year to another.
The Program benefits can be used in addition to these private health insurance benefits for patients that have existing private health insurance policies.
