Can I Claim a Private Health Fund Rebate?

Did you know that 30 health insurers now pay a benefit for services provided by an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP)?

 

In order for a patient to receive a rebate from their Private Health Insurer, the patient’s cover must include exercise physiology services and the treatment must aim to prevent, delay or ameliorate a chronic disease or injury. Insurers do not pay a benefit for general fitness programs.

What is the Move2Perform Screen?

 

Move2Perform is a movement measurement and analysis tool that identifies deficits and risk of injury.

It helps make evidence-based return to sport/activity decisions, categorises clients' injury risk and objectively tracks progress. It's a computer application that synthesises results from proven tests (Functional Movement Screen & Y Balance Test) to calculate musculoskeletal status specific to the individual's age, gender, and sport/activity.

Move2Perform does this by using a propriety algorithm based on years of published research.

 

Benefits

  • Evidence-based care

  • Clear decision for return to sport/activity

  • Reduce sport injuries using a validated injury prediction algorithm

  • Decrease injury rates through pre-participation screening

  • Objective Reports

 

 

What is the Functional Movement Screen (FMS)?

 

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns

 

  • By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries

  • The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress

  • This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns

  • Exercise professionals monitor the FMS score to track progress and to identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each individual.

What the Functional Movement Screen does...

 

The FMS simplifies the concept of movement and its impact on the body. Its streamlined system has benefits for everyone involved - individuals, exercise professionals, and physicians

 

  • Communication - The FMS utilises simple language, making it easy for individuals, exercise professionals, and physicians to communicate clearly about progress and treatment

  • Evaluation - The screen effortlessly identifies asymmetries and limitations, diminishing the need for extensive testing and analysis

  • Standardisation - The FMS creates a functional baseline to mark progress and provides a means to measure performance

  • Safety - The FMS quickly identifies dangerous movement patterns so that they can be addressed. It also indicates an individual's readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved

  • Corrective Strategies - The FMS can be applied at any fitness level, simplifying corrective strategies of a wide array of movement issues. It identifies specific exercises based on individual FMS scores to create customized treatment plans

What is the Y Balance Test (YBT)?

 

The Y Balance Test is a thoroughly researched, yet easy way to test a person’s risk for injury as well as demonstrate functional symmetry. The Y Balance Test Protocol was developed through years of research in lower extremity injury prevention using the Star Excursion Balance Test.

This new device and protocol is highly accurate and can be used for measuring pre and post rehabilitation performance, improvement after performance enhancement programs, dynamic balance for fitness programs, and return to sport readiness.

When the results of the Y Balance test are entered into the Move2Perform software you get your client’s personalized injury risk and peer performance measure according to age, gender, and sport/activity.
