We are with Medibank and our premium rises by 4.5%. At the same time the following natural therapy services will no longer be on our extras cover from 1 April 2019
Alexander Technique, Aromatherapy, Bowen Therapy, Feldenkrais, Western Herbalism, Homeopathy, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Kinesiology and Naturopathy
While we haven’t ever used these services, I expected that we would have paid extra to have these as part of the extra cover suite of services.
I wonder how much the premium increase would have been if these services were not removed. My cynical self suspects that it would have been the same.
This year I plan to again check other providers to see if it is worth changing. I definitely will be using the Choice Health Cover Comparison tool if and when it is updated (as the website indicates that the Choice “tool will be removed on 7 March . We’ll update you soon on how to get the best cover:sign up now for updates.”
