Can I get more information?

With Some Extras, you can choose between claiming 50% or 80% back when you take out the cover. Whatever the provider charges, Frank pays 50% or 80% back (based on your cover) up to your annual limits. That means if you are charged $40 for a treatment your benefit will be $20 (if you’re on Extras with 50% back) or $32 (if you’re on extras with 80% back) as long as you have served your waiting periods and have available limits.

Yes. Frank believes in freedom of choice, so we pay the same benefits to any registered provider. This means you can use your regular dentist, optometrist or physio and still claim.

Yes, on most services you will have to serve a waiting period if you’re new to health insurance. With Frank (and most health insurers) you have to wait a specific amount of time between signing up and making your first claim. This is called a waiting period.

Some Extras services have the following waiting periods:

  • 1 day for ambulance
  • 2 months for included extras (except for Optical and Major Dental)
  • 6 months for Optical
  • 12 months for Major Dental

Find out more about waiting periods here.

The good news is that waiting periods may not apply if you’re coming to Frank from another fund. Find out more about switching to Frank here.

Yes there are. This might make us sound mean but if you have a read, you'll see they're fair. If you’re interested, check out the list of things Frank won’t pay on here.
