Eyelines accepts the top rebate for all private health insurance members with optical cover such as, Medibank Private, Bupa and St.LukesHealth, as full payment for “Everyday” frames and “Standard” lenses. This means that if you are in a private health insurance fund and have ancillary cover which includes optical, you can purchase glasses with low or no out of pocket expenses by choosing a frame and lenses from our “Everyday” range.
If you are in a private health fund purchasing outside of the “Everyday” range you are entitled to a discount off the full retail prices as well as being allowed to claim the maximum rebate for each item. In most cases there will be a “gap payment” required.
Customers from any health fund may be eligible for a rebate from their health fund and we can assist in claiming this directly through the HICAPS system.
What does Private Health Insurance cover?
Ancillary benefit tables cover frames, lenses and contact lenses. Usually there is an annual limit per person and with the use of HICAPS in all Eyelines stores it allows staff electronically process a claim for our patients on the spot, leaving only the “gap” to be paid ( if any).
If you are not sure whether your level of cover has ancillary, you can check this by –
Checking your health fund card – most funds state the cover
(Eg – it will say Hospital and Extra’s or Ancillary)
Contact your health fund provider, if necessary this can be done in the store on your request by swiping your health fund card through HICAPS to get a “quote”
Remember all Health Funds are welcome at Eyelines.
