The program can be used for health insurance policy premiums, ambulance cover or put towards medical bills. Any assistance provided would be paid directly to the health fund provider or supplier. The program will run from 1 July 2024 to 30 June 2025.


Members may access these funds to pay for any medical or health-related goods or services. A tax invoice or quote from the goods or service provider must be sent to Gumala with the Flexible Program application form.
