nib Clinical partners

Dr Jonathan Young is one of five select orthopaedic surgeons participating in a new Clinical Partners Program, announced by private health insurer nib.

Launched in the Hunter, nib’s Clinical Partners program involves select orthopaedic surgeons and their entire surgical team who have committed to performing hip and knee joint replacement surgery for nib members, with no out-of-pocket expenses above their hospital excess.

Members are also being provided with increased treatment choice – for example, access to post surgery rehabilitation at home when the doctor considers it clinically appropriate.
