Can I claim for blood glucose or blood pressure monitors via Extras cover?
You may be able claim towards monitors that are:
- Purchased from a registered Australian business with a physical presence in Australia.
Please note that you can’t claim towards the costs of accessories or hiring a device.
When submitting your claim, please include:
- Completed Aids and Appliances form signed by your doctor (this will be valid for 12 months, after which you'll need to submit another form to claim this benefit)
- Itemised tax invoice that shows the name of the patient (i.e. the person who’ll be using the machine).
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).
