Private Health Funds.

Staying informed about private health fund rebates for fitness services will allow you to provide accurate information to your existing and prospective members about opportunities to claim private health fund rebates for fitness services.

What do I need to do to help my clients/members claim?

The following information about specific funds should be taken as a guide only and is not an exhaustive list of funds recognising fitness services. If your client holds private health insurance, suggest they contact their fund to determine what is required to enable them to gain a rebate and what level of rebate they are eligible to receive. It’s important to remember that all funds are different!  Some funds require you to be registered with AUSactive, while others also require you to register with them directly. A doctor or allied health professional referral will be be required to indicate that the program is necessary due to an existing health or medical condition. Finally, it’s also important to remember that the amount of a potential refund is heavily dependent on the level of cover held by the member and that holding private health insurance does not automatically ensure eligibility for a refund for fitness service. 

AUSactive is working hard towards aligning the Business and Professional Registration systems with all Private Health Funds.
