The aim of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check (MBS item 715) is to help ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people receive primary health care matched to their needs, by encouraging early detection, diagnosis and intervention for common and treatable conditions that cause morbidity and early mortality. The health assessment is an annual service and covers the full age spectrum.
A free NCACCH Polo Shirt will be given to every NCACCH client who has completed a 715 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check between 1st July 2017 and 30th June 2018.
If you don’t have a GP, you can download a list of NCACCH Approved Practices where you will be bulk billed for your visit.
