Claim Back Guaranteed percentage back on specified services provided by Medibank Members' Choice providers only up to annual limits. Services available through our Members' Choice provider network are indicated in the table with a #. Claim 55% back on the costs of included treatments at Medibank Members' Choice providers, up to annual limits. We've negotiated a capped price with Members' Choice providers, so you won't be charged more than the agreed price. If your provider is not part of our Members' Choice network, we still pay benefits up to a fixed benefit. This may be less than the provider charges, as we haven't negotiated a price with them. Generally, the higher the level of cover you choose, the higher the fixed benefit which will help reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.

Extras inclusions
Included Treatments Annual limits per person An annual limit is the maximum amount of benefits Medibank will pay for particular treatments each calendar year. Generally, the more comprehensive your cover, the higher the annual limits. If you are switching, benefits that have been paid under your previous cover will be taken into account in determining the benefits payable under your Medibank cover. Waiting periods Waiting periods explained Waiting periods are the length of time you need to wait after taking out your cover before you can claim or receive benefits covered by your policy. Waiting periods apply to new members or for new services, including if you're changing to a higher level of cover. If you're switching, we'll recognise waiting periods you've already served, so you'll only need to serve any balance with us before you can claim.
