We offer in-centre claiming with select providers. This means we help you claim for your policy on the same day, and save you from spending time making a claim after your appointment. This also helps to reduce or eliminate any payment you would normally need to make on the day of your appointment.

Medicare Online and Safety Net
Technology is now available for you to automatically receive your Medicare Rebate at the time of payment straight into your bank account, rather than manually claiming it later. This way, you effectively only pay the gap.
The Medicare Safety Net protects you against excessive out-of-pocket costs during times when health services are required on a frequent basis and it limits these costs in any given calendar year. Access to this scheme is via Medicare.
