We wanted to pass on the good news that many private health insurers are now providing rebates for Physiotherapy telehealth consultations!
Each health fund may have different eligibility conditions, so it’s important to check with your insurer to see if you can claim this service.
To help you do this, we’ve put together a list of the main private health insurers, with links to further information on their websites regarding telehealth services:
Hopefully other private health insurers will soon follow suit, if they haven’t already. If your health fund isn’t on this list, you may like to contact them and ask if/when they will be introducing telehealth rebates.
At this stage, telehealth consultations need to be paid for in full, then we will provide you with a tax invoice which you can use to claim. Your invoice should have all the information you require (including item codes, provider numbers and dates of service) to complete your telehealth claim.
Hopefully these extra rebates will help you continue to stay on top of your health care during this difficult time.
