- You claim extras services regularly
- You want the highest level of cover for you and your family
- You want high annual limits
- You want confidence in knowing exactly what you'll get back each time you claim
Be covered for an extensive range of services, with higher limits, and get more back when you claim. Our range of top extras gives you and your family cover for the services you need, with the limits you want so you don’t have to think about them when you claim.
Platinum extras has some of the highest annual limits available on any of GMHBA’s extras covers. Claim with the confidence that you’ll be covered for the services you need, when you need them and get more back, more often if you claim regularly.
Percentage Based Refunds
Know exactly what you’ll get back when you claim. Instead of having a set dollar amount, your refund is based on what your provider charges you. For example, get 80% back with Platinum extras: Visit the chiropractor and the consult costs you $100, you get back $80, up to any annual limits.
