Are you part of the 53.5% of Australian’s who have health insurance extras?
With 2021 coming to an end this month, it’s a time many of us are looking forward to. Before we start planning for the new year ahead, it’s important to remember the benefits that 2021 still has to offer.
If you are one of the 53.5% of Australian’s who have health insurance extras, then now may be your last chance to claim on these extras before they expire at the end of the year.
What are these extras?
While every health fund and policy may vary and have various levels, they often include a range of extras that can be claimed on healthcare services such as physiotherapy, massage or dental. Within these services, you often have a limit that you’re able to claim back on within a year. For example, you may be able to claim up to $600 on physiotherapy each year with your health fund. However, if you have only claimed $400 throughout the year, you can still claim up to $200 before the year finishes. Therefore, you should take advantage of your remaining extras before they are lost and reset at the start of next year.
So, how do I find out if I have any extras left?
As each health fund and coverage varies, the best thing you can do is research and familiarise yourself with your policy. You can do this by logging into your account or speaking directly with your insurer on the phone or in-store. Once you find out this information, you’ll be able to have a full understanding of the number of extras you have remaining. Perhaps, you will even discover extras you did not realise you were eligible for!
Once you have a clearer understanding of your benefits and extras, you’ll be able to take full advantage and treat yourself for the remainder of this year. Whether you have been struggling with your nutrition, a niggle or soreness that hasn’t gone away, now is the time to get it to checked out. Here at Progressive Physio, we’re the team to get you feeling good and refreshed before the new year comes around.
