Some useful stuff you may not know you could claim with extras cover
Got extras cover or thinking about it? Here's some of the lesser known but very useful stuff you could claim, depending on your extras cover, annual limits and any waiting periods.
Cancer Council UV products
If you have black 70, black 70 boost, classic, lifestyle, family or super extras cover, or boost package basic plus or boost flexi basic plus, you can claim on approved Cancer Council UV sun protection products from the sunscreen, swimwear, hats and sunglasses range. Your receipt just needs to identify the product as Cancer Council approved.
Mouthguards (custom made)
Don't let sporting mishaps mess with that winning grin. Whether it's for your teeth or the kids, look after your grill with a custom made mouthguard (included under routine dental). The mouthguard has to be provided by a dental specialist who constructs and fits dentures and mouthguards.
Stress management courses
If you have black 70, black 70 boost, classic, lifestyle, family or super extras cover, or boost package basic plus or boost flexi basic plus, you can claim benefits towards courses to manage and prevent health conditions associated with high levels of stress. The courses must be provided by an ahm recognised Psychologist.
Orthotics and orthopaedic footwear
We’ll pay benefits toward orthotics on deluxe flexi silver plus, classic flexi silver plus, black 70 boost, family extras and super extras covers if supplied by an ahm recognised podiatrist.
We’ll also pay benefits toward custom made orthopaedic footwear on black 70 boost, family extras and super extras covers if supplied by an ahm recognised podiatrist or orthopaedic footwear supplier. If you’re buying them from an orthopaedic footwear manufacturer or supplier, you must include a referral from an ahm Recognised Provider.
We won’t pay benefits toward pre-moulded, prefabricated or off-the-shelf orthotics such as sporthotics or formthotics on any covers.
