Can I claim for artificial noses, eyes, ears or limbs via Extras cover?

We recommend accessing any available government benefits before claiming the remaining costs via your Extras cover.


To claim, you need to be on Top Extras with any applicable waiting period served.


When submitting your claim, please include an itemised tax invoice that shows the name of the patient.

Please note that you can’t claim towards the costs of accessories, labour, consultation, or device fitting.


Like most services under the Artificial Aids & Appliances benefit, Artificial nose, eyes, ears or limbs has an annual sub-limit.
