Provider Recognition Criteria

Please note that CBHS requires that providers meet CBHS’ Provider Recognition Criteria. Providers must comply with Rule 10 of the Private Health Insurance Accreditation Rules. Briefly, this means complementary or alternative therapy health care providers must be members of a professional organisation which covers health care practitioners who provide that type of treatment.

The professional organisation must be a national entity with membership requirements, and they must conduct assessments and implement continuing professional education schemes, among other criteria.

If you have any questions about a provider that you wish to use, or wish to find out more about the process of becoming a recognised provider with CBHS, contact Member Care on 1300 654 123 or send us an email at

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
