New To Health Insurance

AT OPSM WE’LL HELP YOU GET MORE FROM YOUR COVER.

Prescription glasses, contact lenses and prescription sunglasses aren’t covered by Medicare. That’s why so many people choose health insurance with optical benefits to help reduce the cost of their vision correction needs. New to health insurance? We’ll help you figure out what you’re covered for and how you can get the best possible value out of your cover.


WHAT ARE ‘EXTRAS’?

Most health funds refer to ‘hospital and extras’, and the ‘extras’ are your everyday health costs such as prescription eyewear, dental, physio and ambulance. Optical extras allow you to claim a benefit from your health fund on a range of glasses, prescription sunglasses and contact lenses to reduce the cost of your vision correction needs.

Each health fund policy is different, to find out what you can claim on your health insurance policy, visit your nearest OPSM store and speak to our friendly experts.


HOW DO I USE MY OPTICAL ‘EXTRAS’?

When you shop at OPSM, you can claim your health insurance optical extras benefit on our quality range of glasses and contact lenses. All you need to do is bring your health fund card and we’ll do the rest.

You will be able to claim your extras benefit on glasses, contact lenses and prescription sunglasses up to your annual limit. How much you pay depends on which health fund you are with, and your level of cover. Some funds have separate benefits and sub limits for different optical products. Visit your closest OPSM and we’ll help you every step of the way.
