Make the most of your extras cover

No matter what your level of Defence Health extras cover, you’ve got valuable benefits that are there to be used. So take advantage of them to stay well and feel great.

Did you know that you get added value from your extras cover through our dental and optical networks?

At a network dentist you will save at least 15% off the dentist’s usual fee. That’s before you receive your extras benefit from us. And on all levels of extras cover (except Standard Extras, Essentials Extras and ADF Essentials Package) you will have nothing to pay for preventive treatment at a network dentist (subject to item limits).

Our dental network makes quality dental care more affordable for the whole family.  

Good optical health is another must-have. Our optical network of VSP Vision Care and Specsavers takes your optical benefits further too. Both providers have a great range of no-gap glasses and other member-only special offers. Plus at Specsavers the no-gap offer extends to two pairs of single vision glasses.

Medicare will cover the cost of your optical examination. And your extras benefits can cover the cost of frames and lenses. So there really is no excuse to be wearing old frames that no longer meet your vision needs.

Now for the biggest news – extra flexibility from extras cover

In addition to our great dental and optical benefits we’ve introduced a flexi-limit on a wide range of extras treatment like physiotherapy, chiropractic, podiatry, audiology, exercise physiology, travel vaccinations and more.

The flexi-limit applies to Premier, Value or Essentials Extras, ADF Total Package and ADF Essentials Package. The higher the level of cover, the higher the flexible limit. And the higher the level of cover, the greater the treatment options.

Members with a flexi-limit can claim more of their favourite treatment under the one generous benefit limit.

Check your product guide for the benefits that apply to your cover. You can find out more about how flexi-limits work here. It’s pretty simple and very flexible.
