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

The Government of Australia via the Medicare scheme will cover medical related expenses, for example an Eye Test at your Optometrist is covered by Medicare.

Having Private Health Insurance will provide greater choice and flexibility, so once the Eye Test is finished you can purchase a pair of glasses or prescription glasses and then claim the purchase price through your Health Fund. Depending on your level of Extras Cover you have with your Health Fund then you will either receive ALL or a large percentage of the Optical cost back. Over 50% of the Australian Population presently have Health Cover and a further 50% of those have Extras Cover which includes annual Optical Benefits.
