Health Funds and ‘No Gap’ Eyewear Packages

What does my health fund cover?

Private health fund 'extras' cover can be used to claim on optical frames, lenses, prescription sunglasses and contact lenses.  Private health rebates do not apply to consultations, procedures or tests.

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 rebate and the cost of your glasses. We can process claims for all the major health funds, and many of the smaller ones.  Please bring along your health fund membership card to enable these claims.

How much will my health fund cover?

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

'No-Gap' and 'Known-Gap' glasses

Wills Street Eyecare offers a special range of 'no-gap' glasses. These include single vision lenses, a choice of frame from our Level 1 or 2 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.

When you need something more than a single vision lens, we quote a 'known' out-of-pocket gap, which is just the upgrade cost to what you need.  These are listed here:
