Can I claim sunglasses with health insurance?
Many major health funds include prescription sunglasses as part of their optical extras cover, so adding a stylish pair of prescription sunnies to your look can be a great way to get extra value with your optical extras. At Specsavers, we’ve partnered with a wide range of local and international designers — from Alex Perry to Kylie Minogue to Will.i.am — to create a collection of on-trend sunnies to suit your personal style.
Depending on your level of cover, as a health fund member, you may be able to get your prescription sunglasses including full UV protection with no or low out-of-pocket expense. If you have Medibank extras or Bupa extras, you may be eligible to claim two designer styles from the $199 range no gap.
How do I claim prescription sunglasses?
Using your optical extras is simple and easy at Specsavers. Using your optical extras to get prescription sunglasses is just like using your optical extras to claim glasses.
You’ll first need to check your extras policy to make sure you’re covered. As every health fund is different, it’s important to double check what benefits apply to you before making a purchase. If you’re unsure, come and see our friendly staff in store who can help you with what you can claim.
