You can claim your health fund benefits all year round but please be aware that most health funds don’t roll over any unused benefits when your benefits renew.
Most health funds renew their benefits every calendar year so it is important to make the most of your cover before December 31st.
If you are not sure when your benefits renew please contact your health fund or visit one of our friendly clinics.
There are many health funds that expire on December 31. Please check with your health fund before booking your appointment to ensure that you have available health fund limits.
