Many of our patients have private health insurance, with most having optical extras cover. However, not all are aware of their health fund entitlements.
How often can I claim?
Most health funds permit one full spectacle claim within a 12 month period, usually January to December. Unused benefits are not usually carried over from year to year. Hence if you don't use it, you lose it.
How do I claim for optical extras?
Easy - we can do it for you. As an approved practice, we have installed an electronic funds transfer system (HICAPS). This acts as an instant claim office for most health funds and enables the automatic transfer of your rebate to our practice which reduces or eliminates your payment to us, depending on your frame and lens selection.
