Stick to Official Providers - Lessons Learnt about Health Insurance

As I mentioned in the earlier post, I got into private health insurance without fully understanding what I was entitled to and I had the feeling I was not the only person in this situation. Here's another lesson I learnt over the last few years being with Medibank.

If you go to a dentist for your free scale and clean, make sure you go to a Medibank provider dentist. A person I shall not name didn't know about this. When she got the bill and tried to claim against Medibank, she was told the dentist was not a Medibank provider and so she ended up paying $140 up front but only claimed back $58.40.

Cost of the lesson = $81.60

A list of providers is available after you log into Medibank.
