^ Tasmania and Queensland have state schemes that cover ambulance services for residents of those States
# Medibank has Members' Choice providers for these services only. By choosing a Members' Choice provider you are guaranteed to receive the percentage back shown on the cover, up to annual limits.
~ Some items and services may require a Referral Letter and may have a benefit replacement period. Please see the Cover Summary or Member Guide for more information.

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.


  • 100% back at all recognised optical retailers (some items excluded, up to your annual limit, waiting periods apply)
  • 100% back on at least one dental check-up & clean at any Members’ Choice dentist (excludes x-rays, waiting periods apply)
  • Access to Members’ Choice, one of the largest health provider networks in Australia, covering more than 12,000 providers. We’ve set maximum prices that these providers can charge, so you’ll avoid any surprises when the bill arrives

With a Member’s Choice provider, you’re guaranteed a fixed % back on services, up to your annual limits. We’ve also negotiated a capped price with Members’ Choice providers, so you won’t be charged more than the agreed price.


If your extras provider isn't part of our Members' Choice network don't worry. As long as they're a Medibank recognised provider, we'll still pay a fixed amount for each service or item, up to your cover's limits.
