Using your Rolling Extras cover

Our Rolling Extras covers you for an extensive range of health services that help you to stay fit and healthy, and many are extra helpful after giving birth.

Our cover is designed to be used – to keep you healthy in body and mind and out there protecting the rest of us.

Mental health support

Pregnancy and the first year after giving birth is a time of vulnerability for many people. This period can be associated with emotional and psychological difficulties which can benefit from psychological support.

Police Health’s Rolling Extras cover has generous annual maximums – particularly in Psychology. This includes Counselling and as of 1 March 2023 has an annual maximum per person of $850 (combined Psychology and Counselling))*.

* Waiting periods apply. To qualify as recognised providers, counsellor’s must be registered with the Australian Counselling Association Inc (ACA) or Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA), be in private practice and meet a set of practice and educational criteria.

Physiotherapy and the pelvic floor

Physiotherapy is highly beneficial for postpartum women. Postpartum physiotherapy can help address a variety of issues that women experience after childbirth.

This includes pelvic pain, incontinence, and weakened muscles. Pelvic pain is a common issue that women experience after childbirth. It can be caused by a variety of factors, such as muscle strains or tears during childbirth. 

Postpartum physiotherapy can help address pelvic pain by focusing on strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and providing education on proper posture and body mechanics.
