Does my Private health fund cover podiatry?

All private health funds cover different services within podiatry, and often your level of cover will determine if you are covered for podiatry. It is recommended to refer to your health fund’s Product Disclosure Statement or call them directly to find out if you are entitled to podiatry rebates.
