Health Assessment — Government Subsidised Assessment of Your Overall Health

A health assessment is a thorough evaluation of your health status, designed to identify underlying health conditions, assess disease risks, and provide recommendations for improving your overall well-being.


A Health Assessment Typically Includes the Following:

  • Medical history
  • Physical examination
  • Laboratory tests
  • Screening tests for certain diseases
  • A discussion of your lifestyle and health goals


The specific components of a health assessment will vary depending on your individual needs and circumstances. However, all health assessments should include a comprehensive medical history and physical examination.

A medical history will typically include questions about your past health, your current medications, your family history, and your lifestyle habits. The physical examination will include a review of your vital signs, a head-to-toe assessment, and any other tests that your doctor deems necessary.

Laboratory tests may be ordered to assess your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, and other important health indicators. Screening tests may also be ordered to detect certain diseases, such as cancer or sexually transmitted infections.

At the end of the health assessment, your doctor will discuss your results with you and make recommendations for improving your health. These recommendations may include lifestyle changes, medications, or further testing.

Health assessments are an important part of preventive care. They can help you identify any underlying health conditions early on, so that they can be treated effectively. They can also help you assess your risk of developing certain diseases, so that you can take steps to reduce your risk.

  • Early Identification of Health Conditions

  • Lifestyle Changes and Improvements
  • Setting Health Goals and Tracking Progress
  • Peace of Mind and Proactive Care


Eligibility for Health Assessments

Everyone is eligible for a health assessment. However, certain groups may benefit more from undergoing these assessments.

Here are some of the groups who are eligible for a free or subsidised health assessment in Queensland:

  • People with chronic health conditions
  • Those at a high risk of developing certain diseases (eg. Diabetes)
  • Individuals over the age of 75.
  • Individuals between the age of 40 – 45.

If you fall into any of these categories, it is highly recommended to discuss the possibility of a health assessment with your healthcare provider.
