Optical explained

If you have served your general extras waiting period then you can claim on prescription glasses/sunglasses. This includes:

  • Frames
  • Lenses
  • Lens coatings
  • Contact lenses
  • Repairs to the above

Like with all health funds, optical benefits do not apply to optometrist or ophthalmologist consultation fees or tests although Medicare may contribute.

Remember that our policies are made simple so you will receive a set percentage back up to the relevant annual limit depending on your cover. 

You can check your optical limit remaining or what cover you are on once you login.
