Private Health Funds

All our therapists are registered to provide either Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Myotherapy or Remeial Massage services.

Private patients may receive a rebate from their private health fund if cover includes ancillary services for OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY, PHYSIOTHERAPY, MYOTHERAPY or REMEDIAL MASSAGE. Depending on the insurance policy there may also be a rebate applicable to some splints and equipment required. Please advise our reception staff when booking if your cover only includes services of a physiotherapist and we will try and match you with an appropriate therapist.

HICAPS facility is available at Helping Hands at our Brighton rooms for on-the-spot health fund rebate for most heath funds.
