In addition, may also run a reduced timetable in periods of low patronage, e.g. from late to December to mid-January, school holidays, or any other reason deemed necessary at BeActive’s discretion. There are no automatic membership suspensions. If you wish to suspend, it must be requested by you within the timeframes communicated by BeActive to clients at the time, but no less than 7 days’ notice.

Any client who wishes to participate in more than 2 classes in a 24-hour period must receive express consent from their BeActive practitioner to ensure their safety and wellbeing.

Our BeActive class sizes are small and can fill quickly. We understand sometimes unforeseeable circumstances can arise, but we must be strict, fair, and consistent with all clients, therefore, no exceptions will be made. Clients must promptly inform BeActive if they are unable to attend a session to allow another client to take their spot. In the event of a late notice, or a no show by a client, another client is prevented from being seen. All clients must adhere to our Cancellation Policy as follows:

Appointment cancellations (including 1:1 Clinical Exercise) need to be made via the BeActive App, phone, or in-person at least 24 hours prior to your appointment.

Class cancellations need to be made via the BeActive App or Mindbody Online at least 6 hours prior to your class commencing. Class cancellations via phone, or in-person require at least 24 hours notice prior to your class commencing. Otherwise a fee will apply. 

Classes (group fitness / reformer / clinical exercise)

Late cancellations (or no shows) will attract the following fees:

  • Pre-paid class fees will be forfeited.
  • If the class has not been pre-paid, you will be required to pay BeActive 100% of the class costs within 24 hours of your scheduled class.
  • Unlimited members – Late cancels (within 6 hours of scheduled start time) or no-shows will incur a $10 fee, this debited from your nominated bank account / credit card. By agreeing these terms you authourise this. Failing to provide notice of non-attendance prior to the commencement of the class via the BeActive app, will be considered a no-show.

Appointments (physiotherapy or other 1:1 allied health services services)

  • If you do not cancel or reschedule your appointment within the relevant 24-hour cancellation period, or are a no-show, you will be required to pay BeActive 50% of the appointment costs within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment. You authourise BeActive to debit your nominated bank account / credit card for this late cancellation fee.
  • If you have arrived at a time that results in you missing more than half of your scheduled appointment length, the appointment may not proceed, and you will be charged the full fee for that appointment.

4. Fees, payments and Health Insurance Rebates

Fees

BeActive services including the BeActive Program have an associated fee. Our fee schedule is displayed at reception.
All prices quoted for goods and services include GST (if any), unless otherwise specified.
BeActive from time to time, vary its prices to take account of, among other things, any change in the cost of providing the goods and services. Any changes to the prices will take effect from the date specified in our fee schedule.

Payments

We accept cash, EFTPOS, and credit card payments (Visa and Mastercard only).

You agree for Ezidebit, on behalf of BeActive to hold your debit / credit card details in secure custody and authorise BeActive to use this information to debit via Ezidebit, your Account for transactions that you request or incur.

You agree that Memberships are debited weekly from your nominated payment method by Ezidebit on behalf of BeActive, and the day of the weekly debit will typically occur on Mondays.

If a membership is commenced halfway through a payment cycle, the client will be charged a pro-rata membership fee for that week as well as the full amount for the week ahead. If a membership is commenced at the start of the billing cycle, the client’s first payment debited will be for the week ahead.

You agree the debit day relevant to your Membership and any recurring cycle may vary slightly based on matters such as public holidays and weekends.

The client must ensure they always have sufficient funds in their nominated account. You must ensure that your nominated payment method is kept updated (including any card expiry dates).

In the event your direct debit payment is dishonored, BeActive may contact the client to notify them of the default, after which you have 3 business days to rectify the default otherwise BeActive may terminate the membership without notice. You agree you will indemnify us for any charge back fees we incur as a result, or we will charge a late payment fee of $10 for a failed payment. This will be debited from your account, and you authorise us to do this.

Health insurance rebates

Private health rebates: Practitioner consultations may be eligible for rebate through your private health cover extras. We can process your private health insurance rebate via our HICAPS terminal at the time of payment for most appointments.

For Class Packs: Private health rebates can only be claimed after the service has been received. Therefore, our class packs can only be claimed through your health fund at the completion of each pack. After you complete your class pack, you may request a receipt to be emailed to you summarizing the classes attended, which you can then submit to your private health insurance for rebate. We can also provide printed copies.

The amount paid by your private health insurance is based on your policy, our reception team are unable to advise what the gap fee will be prior to your appointment. To assist you, we can quote the item code numbers for you to then contact your insurer who will be able to advise how much will be covered.

For clients to be able to continue to claim under their private health insurance extras cover, all Clinical Exercise clients (Groups of 4 & 1:1) are required to be re-assessed by a Practitioner every 4 months and all Fitness / Reformer exercise clients (Groups of 8 or 10) are recommended to have a minimum of 1 x in-room consultation / assessment every 12 months.

Medicare, TAC and Workers Compensation claims

All service fees for clients covered under (the above) schemes are to be paid to BeActive in full at the time of service, at BeActive’s full-service fee. Invoices with all the necessary details for claiming will be issued within 7 days of the session, it is the client’s responsibility to process this claim with the relevant agency.

  • For Appointments which are cancelled by BeActive or significantly altered from the original booking – where no alternative arrangement can be accommodated by the client acting reasonably.
  • For pre-paid classes – if the client is unable to attend their scheduled session or BeActive is unable to run the scheduled session the client may re-book a ‘make-up’ class at an alternative day / time at no extra cost providing conditions are met as per (clause 3 where the cancellation window is articulated).
  • For online or in-studio purchases – in exceptional circumstances a credit may be issued for future services, given at BeActive’s sole discretion.
