What is Extras Cover?
Extras Cover is a policy for medical treatments that happen outside of the hospital and aren’t covered by Medicare - think eye checks, trips to the physiotherapist and visiting your dentist for a routine clean. Medicare might not cover the costs, so without a private health fund, these services might be quite expensive. Especially when the whole family is involved.
The three most common areas of medical treatment that people use their Extras Cover for in Australia, are Optic, Physiotherapy and of course, Dental.
