Private Health Funds

Following the introduction of the Private Health Insurance (Accreditation) Rules 2011 (reviewed in 2019), massage therapists must be a member of an accredited association in order to gain Approved Provider Status with the individual Private Health Funds. Massage & Myotherapy Australia has gained accreditation with various health funds which allows our eligible members to be registered automatically as a provider. Massage & Myotherapy Australia forwards eligible members details to the individual Private Health Funds on a regular basis.

Approved Provider Status enables your clients to claim a rebate on their treatment from their Private Health Fund.
