Defence will have new arrangements in place to deliver health services to Australian Defence Force (ADF) members from 1 July 2019.

Minister for Defence, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP today announced that Bupa Health Services Pty Ltd was awarded the ADF Health Services Contract, which was signed today, for the provision of health services to Defence members.

These arrangements support the delivery of a range of primary and specialist health services at both on-base health facilities and through a comprehensive network of off-base service providers.

“Delivering health services to over 80,000 ADF members and reservists is a complex and important undertaking and after a rigorous procurement process Bupa demonstrated it is able to deliver Defence’s requirements,” Minister Pyne said.

“Under the new contract, ADF members will continue to receive the full scope of health services they currently receive.

“Defence remains committed to maintaining continuity of care in delivering high quality health services for ADF members”.

Defence thanks Medibank Health Solutions for the service it has provided to ADF members under the existing contract.
