Health Funds and ‘No Gap’ Eyewear Packages

What does my health fund cover?

Private health fund rebates do not apply to consultations, procedures or tests. Those who have extras cover with their private health insurance can claim on optical frames, lenses, prescription sunglasses and contact lenses.

We have HICAPS available for your convenience. This enables you to claim your benefits on the spot, so you only pay for any gap between your health fund refund and the cost of your glasses. We can process claims for all the major health funds, and many of the smaller ones.

How much will my health fund cover?

The amount your health fund covers will vary according to each service provider, and it will depend on the level of cover you have and the amount you have already claimed during the annual period. We recommend you confirm the details with your individual health fund provider.

Wills Street Eyecare also offers a range of no-gap glasses. These include single vision lenses, a choice of frame from our package range, case and cleaning cloth, with the cost fully covered by your health fund if you have not made a claim in the present claim year.
