TAL Health Sense Plus

5% off your clients’ lump sum premiums

Through our new Health Sense Plus program, we’re helping your clients learn about the value of preventative screening tests, which can detect and even prevent many serious conditions, including cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

Health Sense Plus forms part of TAL’s prevention program, developed to enhance the health and wellbeing of Australians. In fact, over 50% of all cancers could be avoided with a combination of a healthy lifestyle and regular screening1.

Health Sense Plus rewards preventative screening tests and a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI) with a 5% lump sum premium discount for two years. Here’s how your clients can get their discount:

test icon

Have a preventative screening test with their GP

A number of preventative tests are eligible, your client's GP will select what's most appropriate for them.

Upload icon

Upload evidence of the test on the Health Sense Plus website

We’ll never ask for these test results: that’s between your client and their GP. We just ask for evidence that your client had a test, like a copy of their GP’s invoice or referral letter.

 

bmi

Confirm their BMI is between 19.0 and 28.0 (inclusive)

BMI is a strong indicator of a person’s general state of health and a healthy BMI can lower the risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer.

 

See the full Terms and Conditions for other eligibility conditions.

What test will my client need to take?

We’ll provide your client with a personalised list of preventative screening tests including those aligned to The Royal College of General Practitioners Red Book for people of their age and gender. We only require your client to take one preventative screening test, their GP will determine what is most appropriate.

Preventative screening test FAQs

What are preventative screening tests for?

Preventative screening tests can help with the prevention of illness, the early detection of specific disease, and the promotion and maintenance of health. 

For example, early detection of cancers can significantly improve our ability to recover, and understanding our blood pressure or cholesterol levels can help us manage the risk of heart disease and stroke.

A GP can give appropriate advice on how to better manage health with preventative screening tests.

Which preventative screening test must my client take?

Eligible preventative tests are listed in the introductory email we’ll send your client. These tests align to the Royal College of General Practitioners’ Red Book. Your client's GP will determine which preventative screening test is most appropriate.

BMI FAQs

Why do you need their height/weight and/or BMI?

A person’s height and weight is required to measure the Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI is a good indicator of general health and is often linked to the presence or development of conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
