Who can claim towards travel expenses?
You can claim towards your travel expenses if you:
- Need to see a specialist or allied health professional more than 100km away (200km round trip) because there isn’t one closer to home.
- Have Top Extras (with the 2-month waiting period served).
Reasons for travel may include:
- Hospital treatment
- Specialist consultation
- Specialist dental treatment
- Allied health practitioner appointment.
It’s worth finding out if you qualify for a government subsidy for this one, as they may cover travel and accommodation costs.
