Did you know that HCF members get 100% cover on a check-up, clean and X-rays twice a year, when they choose us? And if you have kids on your family cover, Sports Mouthguards are covered 100% – to protect their teeth. Now that’s a great incentive.
Depending on coverage level, there may be little to no out-of-pocket costs for your care. As this fund is run to benefit the employees, and not to make massive profits, the benefits of their cover are very generous. CBHS is the health fund for Commonwealth Bank and allied business employees and their families.
With NIB and their partner Health Funds, AAMI, Suncorp, GU Health, and Apia Over 50’s health insurance, you’ll never have to worry about the cost of a dental checkup as you’ll be eligible for 100% back. They also negotiate special discounts for their members – like a filling which is normally $195, will only be $131 for members (and then they pay the rebate – reducing your out of pocket significantly). A Dental Crown (615) is normally $1595, however NIB members receive a discount of over $180 – and then can claim their benefits as well.

Is Health Insurance right for me?
Studies have shown that two out of every three Australians have admitted to delaying dental visits due high treatment costs. However, skipping necessary or maintenance dental care can lead to big (and costly) problems down the track—especially when decay and oral diseases aren’t addressed promptly.
Most health insurances will cover most or all of your twice-yearly check-up and cleans – so already there is a $400 – $500 value included in your insurance. Others may provide a percentage of the cost of the treatments – for example, an HBF Top 70 Extras cover, would cover $136.50 of a small filling – meaning only $58.50 out of pocket. It doesn’t take long for that kind of coverage to make insurance worth it for you.
Other insurances negotiate lower prices for their members at participating dentists – such as Qantas Health Insurance which is part of the NIB Group. A normal $195 filling will reduce to $131, then they will pay their share (which on a Top 70 cover, will mean you only pay $39.30 out of pocket).
PLUS you may also be able to access 1 – 2 pairs of glasses a year with little or no co-pay, at participating opticians like Bailey Nelson and Specsavers.
