Making the most of your extras cover


Regular dental examinations are important to detect tooth decay or gum disease in its early stage. Generally, it's recommended to visit your dentist for an examination every 6 to 12 months. Regular examinations for children are especially important to monitor the growth and alignment of their teeth and jaws.


If you are paying for private health insurance with extra’s cover, it makes sense to take full advantage of your cover by keeping on top of your regular dental visits. Limits on your dental extras policy will renew either each financial year or calendar year depending on your health insurance fund. Any unused benefits for the year will be lost when the new year begins, so be sure to use them before they're gone.


In order to claim your benefits, all we need to do is swipe your health fund card on the premises. If you're unsure how much your health fund will cover, we can easily provide an eQuote for you so you can assess how much out of pocket you'll be. For larger families with few cards, some larger health funds offer the option of a digital card. The digital card is currently available for android users and functions just as a physical card would, allowing the user to tap and claim their benefits.
