About the Product

Doctors on Demand operates an online telehealth services system to facilitate the provision of services by Australian registered general practitioners (‘Services’) including 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Australia-wide access to:

  • 15 minute phone or video-based consultations for diagnosis and recommendations as to care and treatment, referrals to specialist medical practitioners, liaising with other health providers and the provision of medical certificates; and
  • issuing and delivering certain medicines via Doctors on Demand’s ‘Quickscript’ function.

Whenever you request Services from Doctors on Demand, you will be making that request to AGA, who will provide the Services through Doctors on Demand on the terms and conditions set out below. AGA will determine your entitlement to receive Services when you request the Services. The terms and conditions contain exclusions and limitations.

 

What Services are included in the Product?

If you have a valid AGA OSHC or OVHC ‘Visitors Plus’ insurance policy, you, and any of your dependants who are covered under your policy if your policy has ‘dual family’ or ‘multi family’ cover, will be entitled to unlimited complimentary use of the Services during the policy period. 

You are not entitled to the Services if you have an AGA OVHC ‘Budget Visitors’ insurance policy.

 

What is not included in the Product?

You acknowledge that AGA provides the Services included in the Product through Doctors on Demand and that AGA does not itself provide any medical treatment or advice or medical consultations of any type.

In providing the Services, AGA does not provide any warranty as to the quality of any medical advice provided by a general practitioner during a consultation or that any particular medication or treatment provided by a general practitioner during a consultation is safe, appropriate or effective.

The Product is not designed to be, and should not be considered as, a replacement for private health insurance.
