Changes to Clinical Pilates
You may have heard through the media or directly through your private health insurer about the changes to your ability to claim a rebate for "Pilates Classes". These changes come into effect on April 1, 2019 as a result of the Federal Government's Private Health Insurance Reforms.
For us, the only thing that will change for us is your receipt. Our classes, although called Clinical Pilates have always been individually tailored group exercises, drawing from a variety of exercise domains. They have been specific to each individual, regularly re-assessed and progressed. This will not change and we believe, has been one of the things that has made our classes different to a "Pilates Class". First and foremost, our classes are Physiotherapy and always draw from a wide range of evidence-based domains.
There is a great article on the Australian Physiotherapy Association website, explaining the changes in detail https://australian.physio/advocacy/phi-pilates-reform. Otherwise, just ask us next time you're in.
