Can I claim for blood glucose or blood pressure monitors via Extras cover?
To claim for blood glucose or blood pressure monitors, you need to:
- be on Top Extras with any applicable waiting period served
- submit a completed Aids and Appliances form (signed by your doctor).
You may be able claim towards monitors that are:
- purchased from a registered Australian business with a physical presence in Australia and claimed with an itemised tax invoice that shows the name of the patient (i.e. the person who’ll be using the machine).
Please note that you can’t claim towards the costs of accessories or hiring a device.
Like most services under the Artificial Aids & Appliances benefit, Blood pressure monitors and Blood glucose monitors have an annual sub-limit (maximum amount you can claim).
