Private Health Funds
Private health funds (Medibank Private, HCF, Bupa, etc..) provide rebates for spectacles, sunglasses and contact lenses. These rebates vary depending on your personal health fund package and the different tables of coverage. It is also possible to purchase a select range of lenses and frames which are fully covered by these rebates with no out of pocket expense for you.
Image Eyewear are Medibank Private preferred suppliers so this allows us to offer exclusive deals to those of our patients that are Medibank Private members.
