How does extras cover work?
IMPORTANT NOTE: While we sort out some teething troubles with our new website gremlins, please send through your Extras claims via our Contact Form. Thanks!
Extras cover helps with the cost of services generally not covered by Medicare and focuses on keeping you healthy. Extras include things like dental, glasses, physiotherapy and a range of other services.
Our extras policies vary with types of services as well as the percentage you get back from 50%, 60%, 65%, or even up to 75% of the fee charged by your provider as a benefit.
The full list of extras categories that you can be covered for can be seen here:
- Physiotherapy, Chiropractic and Osteopathy
- Natural Therapies including acupuncture and myotherapy
- Remedial Massage
- Travel Vaccines
- Non PBS prescription medications including travel vaccines
- Health Maintenance
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech therapy
- Eye Therapy
- Health Screening
- Health Appliances
Benefits are paid once waiting periods have been served up to an annual cap, which applies over a calendar year and varies by cover. Your benefits will reset as of January 1st each year.
