    Half price sounds good. Who has more information based on this deal provider?

    Hey JaySu, WellOne only just launched to the public today. The only important caveat would be that it's currently only available in Melbourne.

    FYI though, WellOne isn't so much of a provider as a middle man. You signup for a membership, which entitles you to access to range of discounts that have been negotiated with the 70+ participating practices across Melbourne.

      how did you launch today when you have this on your site:

      'Join Thousands of Happy Members'

        Hey Ezza, you could say this is more of an official "grand opening" … We've actually been signing up members for a few months now, largely by invite.

          but not the public, according to your post…

      You should put Melb only in title.

    After seeing your map alluding to thousands of customers all around Australia, I tried to find services in Brisbane with no success. I then came back here to see you say you only have providers in Melbourne, that should probably go in the description…

    Considering this, do you really have multiple members living in the central highlands of Tasmania, central Australia, or northern Western Australia?

    •  

      Hey Michael, thanks for the feedback! Sorry that you found it misleading.

      I'll amend the description to include mention of Melbourne.

    No Results Found - for a local dentist either.

    A WellOne Membership gets you access to large discounts off of your family's healthcare
    My private health insurance does the same thing………. Plus I get I get the peace of mind that I have hospital and everything else covered.

    Personally this is a useless product if you have private health insurance.

      Hey Tuzii, unfortunately only about 56% of Australian's are covered by any form of health insurance! That said, WellOne and Health Insurance actually work together - because our discounts are top-line, you still get a rebate off of the discounted fee.

      We do only focus on Allied Health though.

        WellOne and Health Insurance actually work together

        My family gets free dental checkups and cleans twice a year from our dentist.
        How much will WellOne save us on those ???

        •  

          You're definition of 'free' may need revisiting jv…

        •  

          @SBOB:

          You're definition of 'free'

          I don't pay anything additional

          Rep said : "WellOne and Health Insurance actually work together"

          So what is the benefit for me for dental checks ?

        unfortunately only about 56% of Australian's are covered by any form of health insurance!

        Surely all Australians would be covered under MediCare, if they do not have PRIVATE medical insurance?

        •  

          Hi A3Australia, yes every Australian is covered by Medicare. However Medicare does not cover the cost of services such as Dental (except some basic children's dental), Physio, Chiro, etc.

          But as you rightly corrected, I was specifically talking about private health insurance :)

  •  

    I actually think the idea has merit.
    The cost (at a 50% discount of the initial bill) would pay for itself on the first visit with most non 'check-up' visits.
    Not for everyone, but I think it's a good deal.
    Misleading marketing jangle doesn't fly far here though rep.

      Hey hoondaboy, thanks for the tip! ;) I do really appreciate all of the feedback though, I can guarantee it's not falling on deaf ears.

      You're spot on about the savings potential though. The whole idea was for this to be a low-cost, high-savings membership … Being able to make back your membership cost and then some on a couple of visits to a practitioner, that's something we strived for.

        Do you cover for Audiology ?

      I checked their examples, and I'm pretty sure I paid less by going to a Dentist that is 'preferred' by my health fund and getting the health fund price (even before the rebate)

      •  

        There is always a chance that the only providers who have signed up to their program have done so to fill empty seats caused by excessive prices. I guess the point is that the discount is applied at time of billing, prior to any rebates are paid by your health fund. Most of the common dental practices (not just a scale/clean) will cost in excess of $300/400 and can quickly creep up near $1k. A 50% discount off even one of these bills would pay for the $45 1yr membership cost.
        I guess (as with everything health related) it comes down to personal circumstance.

      •  

        Hey jv, dentists who enter into preferred provider arrangements with health funds often do offer great prices (like your above example - free dental checks/cleans).

        We aren't trying to compete with these sort of schemes. WellOne is primarily for families who can't afford private health insurance (and thus, aren't entitled to preferred provider discounts) - we don't propose that WellOne is equivalent to or even an alternative to private health insurance. It's apples and oranges, especially considering the cost of private health (avg $2k/year) vs WellOne (<$100/yr).

        We definitely feel there's a need for a solution like WellOne. Health insurance funds only cover around 15% of the money spent on Dental in Australia, with 56.8% of it being out-of-pocket (http://www.aihw.gov.au/dental/cost/)

    Website doesn't seem to work properly.ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED This web page is not available

    It looks like the Noble Dentist (Which became Smile) but covers other services.

    Not bad for those of us who refuse to pay for private health extras cover.
