Can I claim for crutches via Extras cover?
You may be able to claim towards hiring or purchasing:
- knee scooter
- walking frame
- walker/wheelie walker
- walking stick
- white cane.
Like most services under the Artificial Aids & Appliances benefit, Crutches has an annual sub-limit (maximum amount you can claim). In this case there are separate limits for purchasing and hiring a device.
When submitting your claim, please include an itemised tax invoice that shows the name of the patient (i.e. the person who’ll be using the device).
