MEDIBANK OPTICAL EXTRAS COVER – CLAIMING YOUR ALLOWANCE

Who is Medibank and what Optical Extras Cover do they offer?

The Australian Government through the Medicare scheme cover medical expenses such as an Eye Test that you would receive at your local Optometrist. Private Health Insurance provides greater choice to members, so after your Eye Test is complete you can then purchase a pair of prescription glasses and claim the majority of the cost through your Health Fund. That is why approximately 50% of Australians have Private Health Cover with a further 50% of those Australians having Extras Cover which includes an annual Optical Allowance.

Medibank is the largest provider of Private Health Insurance in Australia.

Medibank Health Insurance provides members with many options for Extras Cover which includes an annual Optical Benefits Allowance. You can click on the following link to view details of Medibank Extras Cover;
