Australian private health funds that cover Hypnotherapy

As a clinical hypnotherapist with membership with the Australian Hypnotherapists Association and Guild of Australian Hypnotherapists, you may be eligible for discounts through your private health provider. I keep my fees low, but if you can get a discount, that’s even better! These health fund lists change regularly, so it’s best to check with your health fund provider and contact myself to see if you are eligible.

Australian Health Management (AHM) AHM only cover stop smoking and limits are set by the level of cover the client has and they must have “lifestyle packages”.

CBHS Health Fund
