HEALTH FUND REBATES
Most of the following health funds will offer rebates to clients of full members of STAA until 1 April 2019. Contact your health fund provider to confirm whether your plan covers shiatsu therapy.
The federal government has legislated to cease private health fund rebates for natural therapies from 1 April 2019, including shiatsu. The health funds have the option to offer shiatsu as an incentive, although no health fund has yet indicated they will do so.
If you are adversely affected by this, please contact your health fund to voice your concerns.
