Information for GPs and Allied Health Professionals
The Healthy Weight For Life™ program is a practical implementation of the core recommendations included in the Australian Dietary Guidelines and aligns with the lifestyle modification recommendations of the RACGP General practice management of type 2 diabetes.
Prima Health Solutions is contracted directly to participating health funds to provide the complete Healthy Weight For Life™ program to their eligible members. Therefore there is no payment to Prima at all from either the patient or Medicare.
