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.

†† Must have eligible hospital cover and meet clinical eligibility criteria. All relevant waiting periods must have been served and treating doctor must consider it clinically appropriate. Out of pocket expenses may apply.

ΩΩ Must have eligible hospital cover, all relevant waiting periods must have been served and treating doctor must consider it clinically appropriate. Participation is subject to availability. Out of pocket expenses may apply. Chemotherapy, palliative, infusion and dialysis program not available in all areas.

2 Two month waiting period applies. Limited to two dental check-ups on all extras annually. Maximum two bitewing x-rays per check up, where clinically needed. Not available in all areas.

± 6 month waiting period applies. Some lens coatings excluded.

There may be out-of-pocket expenses associated with outpatient appointments, such as your initial visit with a participating surgeon in their consulting rooms. This program is only available at participating Hospitals with participating Surgeons. If a member has chosen an excess or per-day payment on their cover to lower their monthly premium, this will still be payable (for example, if you’re claiming for the first time that calendar year, you may need to pay an excess).

> Two month waiting period applies. We'll pay a benefit up to an annual limit per membership towards any admission fee ("facility fee") charged by the Private Hospital for patients attending a Private Accident and Emergency Department. The fee amount varies by Private Hospital and does not include medical and other charges (such as charges for diagnostic imaging or pathology), so out of pocket expenses may still apply. Only available at Private Hospitals with an Accident and Emergency Department. Members will need to submit a claim to receive the benefit and may have to pay upfront.

Covers with Restricted or Excluded services will be treated as Included services where treatment is required for injuries sustained in an Accident that occurs after joining this cover. Treatment must be sought within 7 days of the Accident. Excludes claims covered by third parties such as Workcover and our Private Room Promise. Out of pockets may apply. Refer to your Cover Summary. For Gold hospital covers, Accidental Injury Benefit is not required because all clinical categories are Included, regardless of whether or not the treatment is required as a result of an Accident.

# Medibank has Members' Choice providers for these services. Not available in all areas.

1 Members can claim a maximum of two 100% back dental check-ups per member, per year—either two check-ups at a Members’ Choice Advantage dentist (including up to two bitewing x-rays per check-up where required), or a first check-up at a Members’ Choice dentist (excluding x-rays) and a second check-up at a Members’ Choice Advantage dentist. These check-ups do not count towards annual limits. Waiting periods apply.
