Below is further detailed info in regard to this. Needless to say, I encourage existing and new clients to take advantage of these private health fund rebates for mental health.
Medibank Private rebates for counselling are available to Medibank Private members with appropriate policies. To make a claim, members must have a policy with the package bonus or membership bonus feature. The following Medibank Private products include package bonuses that can be used for counselling but are no longer available for purchase:
- Smartplus; and
The following Medibank Private products include the “membership bonus” and are currently available:
- Everyday Comprehensive;
- Settled Families Essentials;
- Settled Families Comprehensive; and
- Security Comprehensive
Rebates for counselling services will only be paid for BUPA members who have the appropriate level of Extras cover. These benefits will be a part of Extras products under the heading of ‘Mental Health’. Insurance products with cover for counselling can also be purchased from 1 July by new customers wishing to switch to BUPA.
Please get in touch if you questions about the above.
