AN OVERHAUL of the private health insurance system will see cheaper premiums and easier access to mental healthcare introduced.

Health Minister Greg Hunt on Friday will announce a major shake-up of the system, with those under 30 expected to be the biggest beneficiaries.

Just to help clarify what these changes could mean for you – we have laid it out below.

ELIGIBLE UNDER PRIVATE HEALTH

  • Myotherapy
  • Remedial Massage

NOT ELIGIBLE UNDER PRIVATE HEALTH

  • Therapeutic Ear Candling
  • Reiki
  • Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
  • Aromatherapy [use of Essential Oils]
  • Australian Bush Flower Essence Consultation and Healing

Please note, that while the grey row on non-eligible techniques (modalities) may not be covered under the Private Health Insurance Rebate Scheme, at Floating Cloud Therapies: Myotherapy, Reiki and Remedial Massage Clinic we are comprehensively trained in these healing techniques and you also have the peace of mind that these techniques are covered under the scope of our Professional Insurance.
