How much can I claim?
Your entitlements and coverage depend on your health fund, specific health insurance policy, and level of cover, which includes an annual limit for optical, and a set amount of how much can be claimed on each service.
You can claim as often as you like until you hit your annual limit. Health funds pay anywhere from $100-$500 a year, and some work per calendar year whilst others go by the financial year or the anniversary of the sign up date.
If you’re unsure about what and how much you can claim, head in store to speak to our team who are happy to help.
Understanding your extras cover
Make the most of your optical extras, speak to one of our optometrists today to find out how we can help you save.
Optical extras cover provides a rebate, or discount, on many optical products and services such as prescription glasses and contact lenses. Policies and levels of cover vary between insurers from basic to comprehensive policies. Your entitlements will depend on which health fund you’re insured with and your level of cover.
Extras cover is not unlimited. Each policy has a maximum benefit it will pay for specific extras, like optical, every year. Once you reach your limit, you’ll need to wait for the policy to reset before claiming again.
Making a claim
You can make a claim at any time of the year, but keep in mind that any unused benefits from the previous calendar year do not roll over into the new year. Some health funds may run to the financial year calendar, so make sure you check the fine print.
