Medibank and HCF Compliance

Since changes came into effect in November 2013, graduates of the Diploma of Remedial Massage wishing to obtain provider numbers from Medibank, must satisfy Medibank's reformed minimum education standard requirements.

As dictated by Medibank's requirements, the Diploma of Remedial Massage course must be a minimum duration of an Academic year for full time study, or 18 months part-time. A minimum of 20% of the course is to be conducted on campus supervised by a trainer with the appropriate qualifications. The practical components of massage therapy courses must include surface anatomy, palpation, clinical examination, assessment of conditions, treatment plans, tactile therapies massage techniques and other associated therapeutics and techniques. Not all massage courses provided by other massage schools satisfy these requirements, so careful consideration when selecting a massage course and a massage school should be taken.

Students graduating from the Q Academy Diploma of Remedial Massage (HLT50307 & HLT52015) courses will satisfy all of the stated requirements, therefore making Q Academy's graduates Medibank compliant and also HCF compliant.
