ONLINE - Optical Stores, Savings and Special Offers

We love making life easier for our members. That's why HIF members can now buy prescription lenses, frames and contact lenses at potentially lower prices through the following online retail outlets. Rest assured that you'll still receive the maximum benefit available on your current level of Extras cover too. 


Please note: The discounts listed above do not indicate any preference or priority of provider or traditional store based versus internet based providers. Unlike some other funds, HIF fully supports the principle that members receive the same benefit no matter which provider or service delivery method is chosen. These discounts are only available to HIF members who hold an eligble Extras product. * Both offers from OPSM exclude Chanel and Maui Jim products.

HIF Optical Cover

Optical cover that's a sight for sore eyes.

Learn more about eye tests and optical insurance.

Let's start with eye tests. If you hold a current Medicare card, you’re eligible for the Medicare subsidy for eye tests provided by optometrists. Most optometrists bulk bill (meaning you won't need to pay anything up front), otherwise you can make a claim directly from Medicare, which may cover some or all of the charge.

If your test results show that you need glasses or contact lenses, that's where your Extras Cover comes in.

With HIF, you can claim 100% of your annual limit on whatever optical items you need, whether it's spectacles, contact lenses or prescription sunglasses (the only things we don't cover are tinting, coating and grinding). 

And because we don't have 'participating provider' schemes, you're free to purchase your optical items from any provider in Australia.

We do have heaps of bonus discounts locked in with a huge range of retail and online providers though, saving you up to 25% in some cases - and that's before you've even made a claim!

HIF Optical benefits

Want to maximise your optical benefit?

Here's an example of how you can...

Millie holds HIF Top Extras, so her optical annual limit is $300 a year. She visits Specsavers for a free eye-test (covered by Medicare) and learns that she needs glasses. She chooses a pair of designer frames and lenses priced at $250 and immediately receives a bonus 25% discount for being an HIF member, bringing the cost down to $187.50.

She swipes her HIF membership card through the store's eClaiming terminal and we process her benefits on the spot, covering 100% of the fee. Millie then has $112.50 remaining to put towards other optical items for the remainder of the year. 

The following week, Millie decides to purchase some contact lenses from clearlycontacts.com.au and enters the promo-code "HIF" at the checkout, giving her a bonus 20% discount and free shipping on purchases of $99+. She purchases $100 worth of contacts, which is reduced by $20 thanks to her HIF discount. Millie pays for the order in full, then photographs her receipt and lodges a claim through our member app. 

She receives her $80 benefit back in her bank account a few days later, and still has $32.50 remaining in her optical annual limit!
