Private health insurance reforms effective 1st April 2019
As many would have recently seen in the media and also been notified by their private health fund, as of 1st April there are a number of changes to how your private health insurance operates. One change has resulted from the Department of Health conducting a review of natural therapies (including Pilates) in its campaign to help contain premium increases for private health insurance. So from 1st April 2019 all Pilates classes will no longer be eligible for rebates under physiotherapy extras cover with your private health insurer. Importantly, this applies no matter who teaches your pilates class, whether it be a qualified Pilates instructor, Physiotherapist or other health professional.
