Payments

You can pay using your debit/EFTPOS, Visa, MasterCard or American Express (no surcharge), or with good old cash.

Massage

You can pay with your private health fund card via Tyro, which is like HICAPS only quicker.

Please check with your fund to make sure your level of cover allows you to claim for massage.

Please note: HCF does not support electronic claiming for massage. If you are an HCF member you will need to manually submit a claim after your treatment.

Bowen Therapy

Please note that health funds do not have a code to electronically submit claims for Bowen Therapy in the clinic so you'll need to put your claim in via email, an app or an office the old-fashioned way.

Please check with your fund to make sure your level of cover allows you to claim for Bowen Therapy.

The federal government has made the decision to prevent the health funds from paying rebates on “natural” therapies, and this includes Bowen Therapy. From April 1st 2019 (yes, they are starting on April Fool’s Day), you will no longer be able to claim a rebate for Bowen Therapy. Please do not ask me to bill Bowen Therapy as Remedial Massage as this constitutes fraud in the eyes of the private health insurers, and the funds retain the right to inspect records at any time.
