Allied Health TAC changes for 2020-21

As of July 1, 2020, the TAC have made changes to the payment rates for each appointment. For all our TAC clients who are treated by our Exercise Physiologist or with our Physiotherapists there is no out of pocket expense. At Moonee Valley Health and Fitness, we will continue to offer no out of pocket expenses for all TAC funded treatment for 2020-2021. As a TAC service provider, we play a vital role in helping our clients recover from their transport accident injuries. Some clinics will charge fees greater than those on The TAC fee schedule, but we will continue to help support all our clients with no out of pocket expense.
