What are annual limits?

The maximum amount of benefits payable towards services, items or groups of services and/or items in a calendar year.

Switching health funds?

Benefits paid under your previous cover will be taken into account in determining the benefits payable under your Medibank cover.

What is a waiting period?

The time you need to wait before you can receive benefits for services or items listed in your cover.

When do they apply?

To new members, or when switching to a higher level of cover.

Switching funds?

If you're switching from another health fund, on similar cover, we'll recognise waiting periods already served.

Extras costs explained

Extras cover gives you money back for non-hospital services such as dental, physio, optical and more.

The amount of money you can claim back depends on the level of cover you have. Generally speaking, the higher the level of cover, the higher your annual limit and higher the percentage you can claim back. Which means more money back in your pocket.
