Health Fund Rebates

Currently health funds offering rebates are – Australian Health Management, Australian Unity & MBF, HBA (BUPA) (incorporating NRMA, SGIO & SGIC), Health Partners, Teachers Health, Medibank Private and HCF.

HCF and Medibank Private now include the AT for those of their members who have coverage for “Extras” which began in July 09. This means that along with those funds which already recognize the AT, 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 British back-pain study.
