Physio and Pilates Rebates still available

Symmetry Physio - Monday, March 18, 2019

Changes to our Pilates sessions to align with the Department of Health.


Physio and Pilates Rebates still available


You may notice some changes to what we name our current Pilates sessions on our promotional material and invoices/receipts from now on. Our Clinical Pilates sessions will now be called clinical Rehab (formerly termed Clinical Pilates) sessions and our Floor Pilates classes will now be called Clinical Exercise Classes.


Why the changes? You might have heard in the media or from your Private Health Insurance (PHI) fund that there will be changes to PHI rebates for Natural Therapies, including Pilates from the 1st of April, 2019. The good news is that rebates are still available for Pilates-based exercises and sessions prescribed by Physiotherapists. This PHI reform of natural therapies was designed to eliminate rebates for non-evidence-based therapies, and not intended to impact Physiotherapy and Physiotherapy prescribed Pilates exercises/sessions.


What does this mean for you? You will continue to receive a PHI rebate for your Clinical Pilates Sessions (Clinical Rehab) and Group Sessions (Clinical Exercise Classes) at Symmetry Physiotherapy. The changes we are making are purely to align ourselves with the updated regulations as imposed by the Department of Health.

Symmetry Physiotherapy is dedicated to 'Setting the Standard in Healthcare' and we will continue to work hard to deliver great clinical outcomes utilising the most up to date techniques.

If you have any questions regarding the changes in reform, please contact your local Symmetry Physiotherapy clinic.
