Empowering savvier health choices with Citro and nib

Australians are living longer and most of us want our increased lifespan to include full mobility, sparkling cognitive function and enjoyable days with family or friends. Citro’s new partnership with nib will help our members achieve that.

By Citro

It’s no secret that health is where the real wealth is when we get older. 

The statistics don’t lie - older people use more health services and more of us are going to need health insurance to help pay for it. 

Everything from our eyesight, hearing  and hair loss through to more serious illnesses like dementia, cancer or cardiovascular issues become more common with age.

People aged in their 50s and 60s today are likely to live even longer than today’s life expectancy of 85 for women and 81 for men, which will put more demand on publicly funded healthcare systems.

The public health system in Australia - usually called  ‘Medicare’ - is fantastic for emergency healthcare, but it’s not so great for preventative dental and non-critical medical services that help us age well. 

Enter Citro’s new partnership with nib

Citro empowers our members to age positively by bringing you free content and evidence-based information about how to extend longevity and healthspan.

We also carefully choose quality health partners that we believe will support Citro members to make whatever evidence-based health decisions are right for them.

Partnering with nib health insurance means Citro offers our members cashback on buying private health insurance policies, which can help members to:

  • Maintain quality dental health by offsetting the cost of regular check ups and basic fillings.
  • Skip lengthy public hospital waiting lists (especially important if you need hip or knee replacement surgery to maintain mobility).
  • Access allied health services like physiotherapy, osteopathy or chiropractic care to alleviate aches and pains.
  • Enjoy mental health care support when you need it.
  • Access emergency ambulance and intensive care cover in case of an emergency.
  • Take part in preventive health programs for everything from diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular conditions, bone and mobility care and mental health.

The majority of Australians consider themselves to be in good health, and manage to live independently — with or without community-based support — until their final days. 

A health issue causing chronic pain can go untreated for years if you don’t have health insurance to help quickly access surgery or treatment.

Health insurance can be complex, but as a Citro member you will get up to $300 cashback for singles and up to $600 cashback for couples on purchasing an nib health insurance policy.
