What can you claim for?

Before using the search tool below, be clear on what you can claim for.

While eye tests are covered by Medicare*, glasses and contact lenses generally aren’t. Your Extras Product Sheet will tell you how much you can claim towards glasses (frames and lenses) or contact lenses.

If you’ve already claimed for optical this calendar year, also check how much of your annual limits you have left. To do this, log on to Online Member Services then go to Claims and Benefit > Benefit Usage. You can also check your usage through our app.

Non-network providers

You can claim for services that are included on your cover through non-network providers too. We’ll pay for services from qualified and registered providers in a private practice. Luckily most providers meet this description, but if you’re not sure you can ask them if they’re a ‘recognised provider’ with Teachers Health.
