Can you claim for the cost of your sports massage? Read on!

WHAT ARE HEALTHCARE CASH PLANS?

Healthcare cash plans are insurance policies that instead of covering for treatment of acute medical conditions, help pay for the cost of routine healthcare such as going to the dentist, opticians, physio or in some cases, sports massage.

The following private Healthcare Cash plans recognise members of the Sports Massage Association as providers of treatment, and consequently you may be entitled to claim back all, or part of the cost of your sports massage treatment. Below are some of the providers who may let you claim for some or all of the cost of a sports massage treatment:

Health Shield: Clients can claim between 50 and 100% of the cost of treatment (depending on plan details) as long as they have selected Health and Wellbeing as one of their benefits.

Westfield Health: Only the Mosaic plan covers Sports Massage and then, only if it is a chosen benefit.

Medicash: Clients can claim between 50 and 100% of the cost of treatment (depending on plan details) as long as they have selected Complementary Therapy as one of their benefits.

Simply Health: Clients can claim between 50 and 100% of the cost of treatment (depending on plan details; Optimise Plus is covered).

Please check with your healthcare cash plans prior to treatment to ensure reimbursement of treatment cost.
