My son needs a back brace for his posture and scoliosis as per physio states.
Can i claim it through health fund?
Usually when my son sees phyio for treatments we can claim through medibank private extras. We also have hopsital cover.
Have you claimed body brace through health fund for physio?

Maybe if your physio writes a letter? Worth a try.
Our son needs eye patches due to a turned in eye, we can't claim the cost of those through our private health as I asked once.
