Overseas Visitor Extras Cover.

High quality, low cost Extras cover for visitors to Australia. 

Mention ancillary health insurance (or 'Extras') and people tend to glaze over. It can seem a bit dull. But it’s not. Our Extras cover is a wonderful thing, supplementing your visa compliant hospital and medical cover with handy everyday services like ambulance, dental, optical, physio, and chiro plus complementary therapies like acupuncture and remedial massage. And with some of the lowest premiums in Australia, our popular Extras are great value for money too, providing peace of mind from as little as $6.30 per week.

What is Extras cover?

Extras health cover provides added peace of mind, covering you for those essential health services you’re most likely to need on a regular basis. The Extras services most commonly accessed by our members include dental, optical, physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy, podiatry consultations and pharmacy drugs, plus "Complementary Therapies" (acupuncture, naturopathy, remedial massage and more) and Healthy Lifestyle services (like skin cancer screenings and weight loss programs). But that's not all - HIF Extras cover also pays benefits on many other services too including emergency ambulance, dietetics, speech therapy, orthotic appliances, hearing aids, asthmatic spacers and more. Check out our Extras comparison table to view the full list of services available.

Why choose HIF Extras cover?

As well as offering some of the lowest premiums in Australia, we also don’t restrict our members to using ‘preferred suppliers’ (unlike certain other funds we could mention). So if you want to visit the dentist up the road, feel free! Your member card will enable you to  claim on the spot for most services, and on those rare occasions where a provider doesn't offer an eClaiming facility, simply use our SmartClaim mobile app instead - it's as simple as tap, snap and go!

Select the Extras cover option that suits your lifestyle, health and budget.

Please note: Vital Options is only available to Australian citizens and permanent residents, and cannot be purchased with an Overseas Visitors Cover policy.
