No this is not a joke.
I am sorry to have to tell you but the Federal Government is proposing to stop your health fund rebates for 17 different modalities including Naturopathy because of flawed research aimed at reducing the influence Natural Medicine has on your health. We know Natural Medicine has many studies proving its efficacy and you my valued patients know how much it has improved and changed not only your lives but the lives of your families.
The Sydney Morning Herald on 12/10/2017 reported:
“From 2019, private health insurance will no longer cover natural therapies, including aromatherapy, Bowen therapy, Buteyko, Feldenkrais, herbalism, homeopathy, iridology, kinesiology, naturopathy, Pilates, reflexology, Rolfing, shiatsu, tai chi and yoga.”
