You choose extras providers — not us

First, what exactly are extras providers? That’s just what we call the dentists, optometrists, chiros, physios and other professionals who provide health services. Unlike some health insurers, we’ll pay the same benefits at most extras providers, as long as they are legally qualified to practise in Australia and have been recognised by ahm. So you choose your provider, not us.
