Percentage back at Members' Choice providers  

When you visit a Members’ Choice extras provider for eligible services, you’ll get a percentage back of the charge (up to applicable limits). The percentage back you get will depend on the level of cover you choose – the higher the cover, the higher the percentage back.

Fixed benefit at non Members' Choice providers

A fixed benefit is the maximum amount we’ll pay for each service or item (up to applicable limits) and it may be less than the providers charge. Generally, the higher the level of cover you choose, the higher the fixed benefit which will help reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.

Annual limits

This is the maximum amount we'll pay for items or services in a calendar year. The benefit we pay for a particular item or service may be less than the annual limit and less than your provider's charge, which means you may have out-of-pocket expenses to pay.

Benefit replacement period

Benefit replacement periods may apply for some services/items. More information on benefit replacement periods.
