Is Hypnotherapy Eligible For A Private Health Insurance Rebate?
Is Hypnosis Eligible For Private Health Insurance Rebate?

Hypnosis Therapy Clinic and its sub branch Quit Smoking Hypnosis Clinic qualifies for private health insurance hypnotherapy rebates on some private health policies.

If you hold eligible cover with a participating health fund, some of your hypnotherapy fees may be refunded back to you. We do not offer instant claiming, but we will issue you with an invoice that you can send to your insurer to make a claim.

Please note, we do not guarantee that you will be covered nor can we estimate what rebate you may receive if you are covered.

If eligibility to claim is important to you then it is always better that you call your insurer to check for cover before making your appointment.

Here are the details you may need while checking eligibility.

Some private health insurers will offer cover hypnotherapy sessions provided by the members of the Australian Hypnotherapists Association (AHA ) and others only if it is completed by a registered psychologist.

Since we are professional hypnotherapists, not psychologists, you may like to check with your private health provider if they cover therapy provided by the members of AHA.

If you are unable to claim on your private health policy we encourage you to write a letter or email to your insurer urging them to include hypnotherapy in future policy adjustments.

If you have any issues claiming your hypnotherapy session fee please contact your insurer directly.
