Wave goodbye to 2021 not your health fund benefits

The festive season is fast approaching, reminding us how close we are to 2022! With the new year just around the corner, it is important to remember that the majority of major health fund re-boot on the 1st of January. 

What does this mean for you?
If you have private health insurance and you have not yet maximised on your rebates for podiatry cover, unfortunately these will not roll over into the new year. Don’t wave goodbye to your benefits along with the year 2021. Below are some options for what you can use your private health for at FNQ Podiatry and Orthotics. 

At FNQ Podiatry and Orthotics we treat numerous conditions and provide preventative treatment. Some examples are:

  • You wear orthotics and have not had them assessed in over 12 months or are finding it a hassle to change between footwear.
  • The pain you have experienced through your foot or ankle has not resolved, now is an ideal time to have it assessed by a professional.
  • You are a diabetic and require a 12-month podiatric assessment.

We have a HICAPS machine on site so you are able to claim your rebate on the spot. This rebate will vary differently depending on your specific level of cover.  So put your private health to good use and book online or give our friendly team a call on (07) 40455749.
