  • Is removing a wisdom tooth in the dentist chair part of extras cover?

      That sounds like major dental so yes, but you can call dentist and ask for the codes they use for the service, then check with the private health org against the codes.

      If you are in their office you can also get a quote through their HiCAPs machine and estimate your true refund.

    • Nope. Got all 4 removed and fully covered.

      • Who were you with? I'm with NIB and am being quoted $1.2k out of pocked for all 4 out (in dentist chair, but under general)

        • just go to dental99, they charge 99 dollars per tooth.

          • @U30004: how have I never heard of this?! amazing, thanks very much!

              @DaiShan: it is amazing indeed. Have a look https://dental99.com.au/

              Normal dentists are a rip off. I get my checkups, daughters tooth removal, fillings from them.

          General… in a dentist chair? Why would you need to be able sit up in a chair if you are totally konked out? "General" normally requires IV access, an anaesthetist on board, and really close monitoring of your vital signs by nursing staff. I wouldn't touch general with a ten foot pole unless it's under proper operating theatre conditions.

            @blerk: Sorry that was misleading. The NIB dentist says he has an ED doc come in twice a month to sedate patients. Which isn't General

    I used this over the phone for a corporate cover and got 6 weeks free too..

    • Meaning with the 7% discount?

      • +1

        yes or whatever % the company has negotiated.

        • Thanks. How much is yours, if you don't mind me asking?

  • This still seems expensive. I'm with BUPA for a comparable product with the same excess, i'm paying 12% less (Hospital only). Maybe the devil is in the detail but the 2 options were pretty similar.

    • Yeah I agree , I’m with bupa and pay $144/month (I have a corporate 6% discount) as I like to have top of the range hospital & extras for peace of mind and the equivalent product through Medibank was $210 and that’s with my corporate 9% rates

  • There's so many nuances when comparing private health cover, which can actually end up being quite significant. For example, HCF said I get no excess on any hospital visits that don't require an overnight stay. Especially for younger or middle aged people this is probably 90% of procedures. The others I looked at didn't mention this unless I missed it

    • Hi sent you an email but no reply yet.

    • New to private health insurance.
      1. is that first 6 weeks free?
      2. out of curiosity… what will happen if I claim an extra like dental or optical during 6 weeks free period and then cancel it? I guess cant be that simple.

      • edit - Looks like week number 5 to 10 is free.

        So what will happen if I claim dental or optical during first 10 weeks period and then during 11th week I cancel the policy? I guess there much a catch which I am not aware about.

  • Is it possible to pay for a full year on 31 March and still be eligible for 6 weeks free deal?
