Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Checks

If you identify as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person and have a Medicare card, you can get a free health check every year. This health check is important. It can help identify whether you’re at risk of illnesses or chronic conditions. It’s much easier to prevent these than to treat them, so catching them early can make a big difference. If you have a chronic condition, your health check can help make sure you are getting the medication and care you need. You can also ask your doctor about anything you’re worried about or need help with.
