Rebates and benefits are available to support your health improvement program
Claim a rebate for your health treatment or body movement class
The services at Body Organics are provided by highly trained health professionals, so many of the treatments and classes are claimable either with your private health fund or with Medicare.
Private health insurance benefits
Can I claim a rebate for my allied health treatment?
There are two types of private health Insurance – hospital cover and extras cover. Many of the health services provided at Body Organics are claimable under your private health fund’s extras cover. Extras policies provide benefits for ancillary health services such as physiotherapy, remedial massage, osteopathy, podiatry and other therapies.
The level of rebate you receive under your health insurance cover varies depending on which health fund you are with and on your level of cover. If you would like to find out the amount that will be covered for a particular service, just contact Body Organics and we can provide you with the service item number so you can enquire with your health fund.
Can I claim a rebate for my pilates classes?
Many private health funds also provide cover for body movement classes such as pilates and yoga. These classes may be covered by your extras cover or by specific wellness programs, or in some cases both. Check with your health fund on the best option for you.
Medicare benefits and other government programs
For many of the health services provided at Body Organics you or your family members may be eligible for assistance from Medicare or other government programs. Some examples are listed below – check with your doctor, health professional, Medicare or the relevant department for more details.
// Chronic Disease Management (CDM): this Medicare allied health initiative allows chronically ill people who are being managed by their doctor under a CDM plan to access Medicare rebates for allied health services. These services may include treatment by a physiotherapist, dietitian, podiatrist or psychologist or other allied health practitioner.
// Better Access: this initiative provides support through Medicare for mental health practitioners such as psychologists and appropriately trained occupational therapists. A medical referral and GP Mental Health Treatment Plan are usually required.
// Helping Children with Autism: this package offers funding for early intervention services such as those provided by developmental paediatricians and paediatric allied health professionals (physiotherapy, speech pathology, psychology and occupational therapy).
// Paediatric benefits: Medicare benefits are also available for a range of specified developmental paediatric services for children with certain conditions. For these services a medical referral is usually required.
HICAPS for quick and easy claiming
At each Body Organics studio we have a dedicated HICAPS / EFTPOS terminal so you can quickly and easily process your private health fund and Medicare claims. Simply swipe your health fund or Medicare card into the HICAPS terminal and just pay the gap amount with your credit or debit card (we accept MasterCard or Visa).
If you have purchased a package of body movement classes (for example a semi-private studio equipment 10-pack) and it’s eligible for a rebate from your private health insurer, then once the classes have been taken Body Organics can provide you with a receipt to send to your health fund.
