PACFA Registrants to be providers under Police Health and Emergency Services Health

PACFA is pleased to confirm that from 1 April eligible PACFA Clinical Registrants will be able to become providers for Police Health and Emergency Services Health.

To be eligible to provide services under Police Health and Emergency Services Health, you will need to hold PACFA Clinical registration, meet the qualification requirements for the two health funds and have a current First Aid certificate. It is expected that the qualification requirements will be similar to the requirements to be a Bupa provider.

PACFA will be announcing discounted First Aid training rates for our members through the Australian Red Cross very soon, to make the process of getting a first aid certificate a little easier.

Police Health and Emergency Services Health have recently made significant changes to the way their mental health extras benefits are structured, in order to provide their members with greater choice and more flexible rebate arrangements.  From 1 April, members of both funds will be able to choose Counselling or Psychology rebates up to a combined annual maximum of $850 per person. Both funds will also allow their members rollover benefits for counselling, which means unused rebates will remain available for members to access from one year to the next.

The benefits and ease of access to counselling services being offered by both Police Health and Emergency Services Health is impressive so we encourage all eligible PACFA Registrants to apply to become providers.

PACFA will be contacting all Clinical Registrants via email in the coming weeks with further information on how to become a provider for Police Health and Emergency Services Health. PACFA Registrants who are currently providers for Bupa will automatically be eligible to become providers and we will be in contact very soon to invite you to opt in.
