Extras cover is there to support our health and wellbeing and help pay for things that Medicare won’t, so it makes sense that we use it even when we’re healthy. Taking a proactive approach can mean we get more out of our busy lives and prevent little issues becoming big problems.
Here’s some of the most common ways we see members making the most of their extras cover every day:
Gap free dental
At Phoenix Health, our new percentage-based extras covers include 100% benefits for check-ups and scale and cleans which means there’s nothing for you to pay for preventative dental and no excuse to put off your regular visits. If you haven’t made the most of your dental benefits this year, the busy Christmas period often means last minute appointments become available – so you can make the most of your benefits before they reset.
Glasses and prescription sunglasses
If you wear prescription glasses, now is a great time to use any available optical benefits to update your look with a new pair of prescription glasses or treat yourself to a pair of prescription sunglasses in time for Christmas.
Massage, physio and chiro
2020 has been a big year – could you use a massage? Stress can take a toll on us physically and with more of us spending our days seated, making an appointment for a remedial massage, physio or chiro treatment can stop little niggles becoming bigger issues.
When do my benefits reset?
New year, new benefits! At Phoenix Health, all extras benefits reset on the first of January every year. Which means now is the perfect time to make those last-minute appointments and get the most out of your cover.
How can I check what benefits I have available?
You can view your benefits and available limits at any time by downloading the Phoenix Health App from the App Store or Google Play or by logging into Online Member Services.
