Private health insurance may cover information session fees

4 July 2011 - 2:57pm

Some private health insurance policies can cover information sessions and advice from medical experts on a range of medical issues.

For example, one session organised by Natasha O'Brien, the manager of Core Gymball, will focus on the pelvic floor and bladder.

According to the St George and Sutherland Shire Leader, the session will take place at the Menai Services Centre, which was established to provide women with a welcoming environment where a variety of health-related issues can be discussed, including leaking, lazy bowel and prolapse.

While the session - scheduled to take place this evening (July 4) has a $110 fee, this can be claimed back from some private health insurance providers.

When it comes to health insurance, it is well worth checking your policy annually - tax time is often a popular time of year to review your cover - to ensure it still meets your unique needs.

Health funds can often change the premiums and benefits of their policies from year to year, so you may wish to discuss your requirements with your broker.

Your broker has access to numerous funds around Australia - many of which have competitive covers and premiums. They can help you determine the level of cover that is right for you and ensure you can switch seamlessly between funds if you choose to.
