Medibank customers seeing in new year clearly – with 800,000 pairs of new glasses
With New Years just days away, Medibank is seeing its customers continuing to favour optical extras benefits in the lead up to benefits resetting for 2017.
Medibank Chief Customer Officer David Koczkar said he was always pleased to see customers benefitting from their insurance and extras.
“In the 2016 financial year we funded almost 800,000 pairs of glasses nationwide, with New South Wales leading the pack on around 216,000 compared to their counterparts in Victoria and Queensland on around 199,000 and 182,000 respectively.
“In dollar terms that’s almost $159 million worth of glasses for Australia, holding steady from 2015.

“Optical continues to be our most used extra, and we encourage our customers to get the maximum value from their policies.
“There are over 1,000 Members’ Choice providers – including brands like OPSM and Specsavers – nationwide, so our customers should be able to easily find a local option that suits them,” said Koczkar.
