HCF Assist

Our helpline provides telephone assistance for personal and health support. 

We want to make your life easier, from accessing the health care services you need to finding tradies, tax or legal advice when you need them most.

HCF Assist is available 7 days a week on 13 13 34^.

Healthcare support

You can call our helpline to ask health questions, we have nurses on-hand to help you determine how serious your health issue is and what your next steps should be in getting medical attention*. 

HCF Assist can also help you find HCF participating providers and services, including: 

  • specialist doctors
  • private hospitals
  • extras providers.

*The telephone triage service isn't intended for life threatening or medical emergency situations. It isn’t a diagnostic service and doesn't replace a consultation with a health professional.

Personal support

HCF Assist can also make your life easier by putting you in touch with a range of other resources, including for:
  • grief and trauma counselling
  • legal guidance services 
  • tax guidance services
  • home services (e.g. electricians and plumbers) 
  • funeral arrangements.

Your initial consultation with a legal or tax advisor will be covered under HCF Assist. You’ll be responsible for the fees associated with additional tax and legal consultations, home service providers and funeral arrangements.
