Can I claim for orthotic devices or repairs via Extras cover?
To claim, you need to:
- be on Top Extras with any applicable waiting period served
- submit a completed Aids and Appliances form (signed by your health practitioner*)
You may be able to claim towards the purchase, or repair, of orthotics that are:
- moulded or heat-moulded pre-made.
You can’t claim towards products that are:
- purchased in a retail store.
When submitting your claim, please include an itemised tax invoice that shows the name of the patient (i.e. the person who uses the orthotics).
