Health Funds & Rebates
We accept all health funds that are covered through HICAPS.*
We accept “on the spot” refund payments through our HICAPS machine.( Each health fund and level of cover within each health will pay different amounts on the refund or claim. Most funds will cover a percentage of the treatment cost and you will be required to pay “the gap”. )
Please call us to ascertain the code required for your treatment type (eg physiotherapy) before requesting refund amounts from your health funds. (We are unable to request information regarding your individual fund and level of cover.)
Please bring your health fund card to claim your on the spot refund and please bring other payment methods to pay your gap.
*Please note: Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Acupuncturists, Dietitians, Naturopaths, Remedial Massage Therapists, Myotherapists and Speech Pathologists – Currently not all the HICAPS participating health funds are available. Please visit the HICAPS website for the latest update on the health funds available.
