Private Health Insurance in Australia

Private Health Insurance in Australia can be complex and confusing for the average person. The likes of online websites such as http://www.iselect.com.au and http://www.privatehealth.gov.au have started to make the process much easier for those seeking to understand and/or selecting private health insurance that suits your needs and budget.

Privatehealth.gov.au are a great website resource for a full insight into all Health Fund providers in Australia. If you follow the following link you can find information on all Health Fund providers, plus find Financial Compliance Details for each Health Fund which can help you understand which Health Funds provide the greater benefits for you.

Privatehealth.gov.au also has a cool short video that clearly states that the website exists to “help you maximise your Private Health Fund benefits whilst reducing your expenses”. Frankie Dean is a strong advocate of this statement, and you will find below a step by step guide as to how we can help you maximise your Optical Health Fund Benefits when purchasing prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses.

How can Frankie Dean help maximise my Optical Benefits with my Health Fund and take the pain out of the process for me?

Many Australians would testify that claiming Extras with your Health Fund can be difficult. In regards to Optical Benefits, most Australians would traditionally purchase through Retail Outlets and would just swipe their membership card at an Optometrist and told what they can claim. This would place you in the popular category of being one of many Australians whom have Optical Extras Cover that will still have a GAP amount to pay to the Optometrist after using your annual Optical Allowance. So would you agree it’s fair to say that your Optical Allowance does not stretch as far as you thought when purchasing prescription glasses through traditional Optical Retail stores.

So, wouldn’t you be ‘over the moon’ to purchase Prescription Glasses or Prescription Sunglasses with NO GAP or with minimal GAP to pay annually. Through traditional retail means this is not achievable for thousands of Australians with Optical Extras in particular when shopping at the large corporate chain stores or even at your local optometrist.

And it would also be fair to say that most Australians are not aware that Frankie Dean is registered with the majority of Health Funds in Australia, and most likely registered with your Health Fund of choice ! Here are just some of the more popular funds we are registered.
