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 plus, basic, lifestyle, family or super extras cover, or black+white boost or black+white boost flexi, 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 plus, basic, lifestyle, family or super extras cover, or black+white boost or black+white boost flexi, 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
If you have black 70 plus, family or super extras cover or black+white deluxe flexi or black+white classic flexi, we'll pay benefits for orthotics and orthopaedic footwear if they are custom made and supplied by an ahm recognised podiatrist or orthopaedic footwear supplier. If you're buying them from an orthopaedic manufacturer or supplier, make sure you include a referral from an ahm Recognised Provider with your claim. Benefits don't cover pre-moulded, prefabricated or off-the-shelf orthotics such as sporthotics or formthotics.
