We’re coming to the end of the year, warmer weather and more walking to be done!
This time of the year is also the time that a number of private health insurance funds ‘reset’ their benefits at the end of December (including Medibank, Bupa, NIB, AHM, Defence Health and more). So if you’ve been paying for health insurance all year and you haven’t used all of your benefits, it DOES NOT roll over – it’s gone for good!
How does knowing this help?
If you have orthotics and love them then you’d know that it’s a hassle when you change your shoes and have to swap the orthotics around. This time of the year is when many orthotic wearers come back to utilise their private health funds to get an extra pair so that they don’t have to try and remember to wear their orthotics when they change their shoes!
Also, many people want to get their feet looking and feeling good for summer. That’s why there’s a rush right now before the end of the financial year when people call to make a Podiatry appointment.
If that’s you, there’s still time to claim your additional pair of orthotics or have your feet freshened up and ready for summer.
You don’t need a referral to see a Podiatrist, and you don’t even need an injury. At our clinic, we see many people for maintenance or preventative treatment.
If you’re not sure how much is left on your health insurance to use up, best way to find out is to contact your private health insurance provider (the phone number is usually on the back of your health fund card). Take advantage of using what’s left of your health fund rebates before they go to waste!
