    Giving Medibank customers the dental advantage

    The dentist

    From 2019, we are adding more value into our Extras products with the launch of Members’ Choice Advantage, a network of dentists providing Medibank customers with more value from their Extras cover.

    Medibank’s Members’ Choice network is already one of Australia’s largest health provider networks, delivering better value extras services for our customers.

    Medibank customers with extras cover for 2 months or more, can now access up to two 100%-back check-ups with their Members’ Choice Advantage dentist every year, without the check-ups coming out of their general dental limit. Up to two bitewing x-rays per appointment are also included in the Members’ Choice Advantage offer if they’re needed.

    The new Members’ Choice Advantage network means that customers won’t be out-of-pocket for either of their bi-annual check-up, scale and clean, including up to two bitewing x-rays per check-up, potentially saving up to $220 per appointment.

    David Simpson, Medibank General Manager of Health Benefits, said that the new Members’ Choice Advantage network shows Medibank’s commitment to providing customers with better value.

    “We know that dental is the most commonly claimed Extras benefit and that our customers can generally get better value on services like this through the Members’ Choice network, so I’m pleased that we’ve been able to deliver even more value to include the two dental check-ups each year with Members’ Choice Advantage,” Mr Simpson said.

    About the 100% back on two dental check-ups
    The benefit applies to all Medibank customers who have held an extras policy for more than two months and visit a Members’ Choice Advantage dentist for their check-up. This includes a check-up, scale and clean, and up to two bitewing x-rays if they’re clinically needed, twice a year at a Members’ Choice Advantage dentist for all family members with Extras cover. The benefit does not count towards a customer’s General Dental limit. Members are limited to two dental check ups across all extras covers each year.

    Medibank members with an Extras policy can find a Members’ Choice Advantage dentist using our Find a Provider tool.
