Health Fund rebates
Published on June 25th, 2013
Currently a wide selection of health funds offer rebates on lessons or classes in the Alexander Technique – including Australian Health Management, Australian Unity & MBF, HBA (BUPA) (incorporating NRMA, SGIO & SGIC), Health Partners, Teachers Health, Medibank Private and HCF and more.
This means that lessons will be covered for the great majority of members of private health funds who choose to take out this level of coverage. The Australian Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique is following this up by actively lobbying those funds which do not yet offer coverage for the Alexander Technique, pointing out the level of coverage of other funds and providing them with information on the recent compelling research into efficacy of lessons in the Alexander Technique, and of the cost effectiveness compared to other approaches.
