Kieser partners with health insurer GMHBA
The future of Physiotherapy.
Kieser partners with health insurer GMHBA in pandemic innovation.
At Kieser we believe in science. We also believe in innovation. That’s why we are excited to announce our partnership with GMHBA and offer their members with extras access to our Physios for $0 out of pocket.
When COVID-19 hit and we went into Stage 3 restrictions nationally, we knew that many of our clients, and many Australians in general, wouldn’t be able to access their normal medical services. Whilst Physio was open, clients in high risk categories were cautious and when elective surgery was put on hold, the number of people requiring physio jumped dramatically. We were faced with increased need and decreased access simultaneously and overnight.
Just 2 months later, Kieser and GMHBA have put together an innovative program to help GMHBA members access to the highest quality Physiotherapists at home and in our 17 clinics across Australia. This includes:
- $0 out of pocket Physiotherapy up to your annual Physio limit
- 6 Physio sessions on top of your annual limit if you qualify for a chronic disease management program.
- Eg. Back pain, arthritis, pre or post surgery
- Access in clinic or via TeleHealth
General Manager of Private Health Insurance at GMHBA, Tony Hall, says “Access to quality healthcare, like physio, is more important than ever during isolation. I am delighted we have partnered with Kieser to provide relief to those who need it most with no out of pocket costs.
This partnership is a major step forward for not only Kieser and GMHBA, but for the Physiotherapy and Private Health Insurance industries concurrently. Kieser CEO, Brett Long, says “At Kieser we see a future for Physiotherapy where we work closely with the Private Health Insurers and the industry as a whole. GMHBA should be commended on their progressive approach and willingness to provide additional value AND greater access to their members. In this partnership all parties benefit and that bodes well for us working together in the future.”

Terms and conditions: Initial and subsequent consultations with Kieser will be $99 per consultation. For non-chronic conditions, the no-out-of-pocket physiotherapy sessions will come off your extras annual limits for physiotherapy. If you have a chronic condition your Kieser physiotherapist will assess your eligibility for a clinical program, which includes up to six no-out-of-pocket physiotherapy sessions in addition to your extras annual limit. This offer will be available until 30 September 2020, however GMHBA will continue to assess the pandemic situation to determine if we need to extend this date.
