Can I claim for crutches via Extras cover?


To claim for crutches (or other items listed below) you need to be on Top Extras cover with any applicable waiting period served.


You may be able to claim towards hiring or purchasing (from a registered Australian business with a physical presence in Australia):

  • Crutches
  • Knee scooter
  • Rollator
  • Walking frame
  • Walker/wheelie walker
  • Walking stick
  • White cane.


When submitting your claim, please include:

  • Itemised tax invoice that shows the name of the patient (i.e. the person who’ll be using the product).


Like most services under the Artificial Aids & Appliances benefit, Crutches has an annual sub-limit. In this case there are separate limits for purchasing and hiring a device.
