North Coast Aboriginal Corporation for Community Health (NCACCH) encourages our Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander community members to visit their GP for a 715 Health Check.
To promote the importance of this health check, we will give every eligible NCACCH client a promotional item/incentive (subject to availablilty) for having their 715 Health Check.
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.
Every eligible NCACCH client who attends their GP for a 715 check will receive a 715 Health Check Shirt (subject to availability).
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.
For any further information or assistance please contact NCACCH on 5346 9800, or for more information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health checks you can download the MBS Item 715 Fact Sheet.
