Extras cover - more info

  • Annual limits are for a financial year (1 July - 30 June) and are usually per person (unless it says otherwise).
  • Optical benefits (glasses & contacts) are paid when glasses or contacts are prescribed by a registered optometrist. They have to be for sight correction and we don't pay on non-prescription sunglasses.
  • Smiles all 'round - We've teamed up with the smile.com.au network of quality dentists to help take the bite out of your wallet.
    You can now visit any of the friendly smile.com.au dentists around the country and you'll get at least 15% off their usual fee for all treatments - just for having extras cover with Peoplecare! This offer is separate to your extras limits and waiting periods, so you'll get savings all year-round.
  • Health Management - We pay benefits for approved programs to manage or treat specific health condition. Health screening services such as blood pressure testing, cholesterol checks, mammograms and hearing tests can be claimed if Medicare doesn't pay a benefit. Please give us a buzz for details. Under the Private Health Insurance Act, we can't pay benefits for goods and services that are for the purposes of sport, recreation or entertainment (like gym memberships). You'll need to send us a Declaration of Condition form

  • received more than 2 years ago
  • received from providers that aren't registered or recognised by Peoplecare

  • Surcharges, delivery costs and credit card processing fees
