HEALTH FUND REBATES
The Impromy Program can be even more affordable when you take advantage of rebates from your private health insurer.
Certain health funds already provide a rebate for a range of programs designed to improve your health. This doesn’t usually extend to many weight loss programs, for a variety of reasons. Fortunately for Impromy members, our high level of clinical support, scientific research and collaborative development approach with CSIRO put us in a different category.
Some health insurers are already providing a claimable benefit for costs related to the Impromy Program and we are working on adding more health insurers to the list. See the list below for involved health insurers and how to claim.
Most people insured by Bupa will have access to differing levels of rebates for costs associated with the Impromy program. This applies both to the initial sign-up fee and the ongoing costs of the program. Bupa covers programs that are based on “face-to-face consultations or visits” and Impromy is an officially approved program.

Claimable under: Weight Management Programs: https://www.bupa.com.au/health-and-wellness/programs-and-support/health-management-extras-service/weight-management-program
What is needed to claim? Your claim needs to contain a completed claim form and a copy of your receipt. Part of the claim form should be filled out by your Impromy consultant or the pharmacist.
Which plans provide rebates? Most plans.
Please note that claims to Bupa can’t currently be submitted via myBupa. They should be claimed at a Bupa Retail Centre or by post.
