Am I covered for diabetes?

If you hold Super or Premium Options Extras cover then you will be eligible to claim a benefit for a "Diabetes Education" consultation or information session held by a credited Diabetes Educator with Diabetes Australia.

Essentially, this is a benefit for a charge raised by Diabetes Australia when a person attends a consultation or information session in relation to diabetes.

Please note: This does not mean that you need to be a diabetic. A diabetes consultation can relate to information you should be aware of because a friend or family member has diabetes.
