Can I claim for artificial noses, eyes, ears or limbs via Extras cover?

We recommend accessing any available government benefits before claiming the remaining costs via your Extras cover.


To claim on your Extras, you need to be on Top Extras with any applicable waiting period served.


Please note that you can’t claim towards the costs of accessories, labour, consultation, or device fitting.

Like most services under the Artificial Aids & Appliances benefit, Artificial nose, eyes, ears or limbs has an annual sub-limit (maximum amount you can claim). You can check your remaining limits via our member app or Online Member Services.

When submitting your claim, please include an itemised tax invoice that shows the name of the patient.
