A lot of people have private health insurance with extras and often don’t get to make the most of it.  Private Health Fund Insurance Extras varies from insurance fund to fund, however it will generally cover treatments such as Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Chiropractor, Naturopathy, Massage and much more.

At Principle Four Osteopathy our Melbourne CBD Osteopathy Clinic has a Hicaps facility onsite which allows you to claim your private health fund rebate immediately.  This means you will only have to pay the difference between this and the consultation fee.  Private Fund Rebates vary from fund to fund.  To find out how much you can claim back from your fund, please read your insurance documentation.  In many circumstances, clients with Private Health Fund Extras can claim anywhere between $250 and more for Osteopathy per year.

Hicaps participates with the following health funds and therefore allows on the spot claiming:

  • Medibank
  • NIB
  • HBF
  • HCF
  • BUPA
  • AHM
  • Australian Unity
  • Teachers Health Fund
