Private Health Funds



PACFA regularly approaches all Private Health Funds to seek greater recognition for PACFA Registrants through private health rebates for counselling and psychotherapy services.

Currently, PACFA Registrants in private practice can offer private health insurance rebates to clients with appropriate Bupa and Medibank Private cover. The coverage provided to clients through Medibank Private is limited and more details can be found here. The coverage provided by Bupa is extensive and more details can be found about it here.

PACFA’s registrants are also recognised by a variety of other smaller funds and our campaign aims to increase coverage with with these funds and to extend the limited coverage by Medibank Private. PACFA regularly meets with staff from Private Health Funds to advocate for increased coverage and regularly submits to appropriate government submissions and reviews.

PACFA is currently in discussions with Medibank Private about increasing rebates for counselling, and with AHM and Police Health about introducing rebates for counselling in 2020.

We will provide regular reports though eNews of our progress with the campaign.
