Private Health Funds

If you have a client who holds Private Health Insurance with Extras cover, they may be able to claim benefits for counselling and psychotherapy services provided by you. Your client will need to check with their Health Fund as to whether they are eligible for rebates.

Currently, PACFA have agreements with Medibank, ahm, Bupa, and ARHG (encompassing St Luke's Health, Phoenix Health, CUA, Police Health, and Emergency Services Health).

You may also be able to approach Doctors Health Fund and Grand United directly to apply for a Provider Number with them, however PACFA does not hold an agreement with either of these funds.

For detailed information on each of the funds PACFA holds an agreement with, see below.
