Any good health fund will cover Physiotherapy if you have ‘extras’ cover. The amount that the health fund will pay, per consultation, and the overall limit that the fund will pay in a year, is individual to your health fund. The fund often pays part of the consultation, through a system called ‘HICAPS’. Using HICAPS means that when you pay for your consultation, you are able to swipe your health fund card, and then only pay the difference between what the health fund pays, and the consultation fee. This saves you a trip to the health fund office! Make an enquiry with your health fund to find out the specifics of how much your health fund will cover.
