HBCF can fund 3 lymphoedema management treatments for clients who have exhausted funding through Medicare and private health insurance.
Lymphoedema can be a painful side effect of some breast cancer treatments. HBCF can help clients in accessing treatment with funding assistance.
Treatment when it's needed
At HBCF, we don’t believe pain-relieving physiotherapy treatment for lymphoedema should be denied due to financial circumstances. That’s why we have a program dedicated to helping clients access treatment when they need it most.
3 lymphoedema treatments
HBCF may provide funding for 3 physiotherapy lymphoedema treatments up to $90 each for patients who have exhausted funding through Medicare and private health insurance.
Treatment options for remote clients
HBCF may cover the cost of machine rental for patients living a long distance from their treatment centre. This request will be considered with an accompanying referral from the treating physiotherapist.
Direct payments to provider
HBCF can authorise treatments in advance so clients are not out of pocket (capped at $90 per treatment).
Choose your own physio
HBCF understand the importance of continuity with a health practitioner. That’s why we allow clients to choose their own physiotherapist so they can continue their lymphoedema management with someone they know and trust.
