Private Health Fund Rebates

The Denmark Recreation Centre is a member of Ausactive. 241683

AUSactive has been able to negotiate agreements with key health funds to streamline access to private health fund rebates with major health funds, and is continuing to develop these agreements with additional funds. 

All health funds are different. Each fund will have different requirements for the service provider and the Rec Centre may not be eligible. AUSactive has negotiated agreements with some health funds enabling you to quote the  AUSactive Registered Member number, however other funds may require you to register directly with them. Please refer to the guidelines below for more information.

As with other health services for which rebates are available through private health funds, the value of rebates for fitness services is dependent on both the level of cover your member or client has, and their eligibility for refund for a fitness service. A referral from a doctor or allied health professional may be required by the fund before rebates apply. Holding private health insurance does not automatically ensure eligibility for a refund for a fitness service.
