CBHS can only pay benefits to members for services administered by Recognised Providers. Find out which providers are recognised here
Before booking an appointment for a service or treatment that you plan to claim for under your CBHS Extras Cover (such as Acupuncture or Physiotherapy) make sure the provider you've chosen is recognised by CBHS. CBHS can only pay benefits for services provided by Recognised Providers.
On this page you will find information about the types of providers that are recognised, and the services for which they are considered to be Recognised Providers.
Please note, some Recognised Providers are also members of the CBHS Choice Network. In addition to paying benefits, these providers may reduce or remove gap payments for selected Extras services. To find out about the CBHS Choice Network, please click here.

CBHS, as a health insurer, does not recommended practitioners to members and does not participate in the clinical relationship between member and provider. CBHS is not responsible for clinical outcomes for services provided or not provided by recognised providers. The extent of CBHS' responsibility, as a health insurer, is to determine whether to pay or not to pay fund benefits. In doing so, CBHS acts in accordance with the CBHS Health Benefit Fund Rules and the applicable Government regulations.
