I have top cover with medibank private but they are very mean, can I change to NIB without losing my years of cover with medibank private?
Hi Patricia, your concern is common which is why nib offers continuity of cover for any waiting periods that you may have already served with an existing fund. (Provided you make the change within 59 days from the cancellation of your existing fund). To make things easy, we can even contact your previous fund on your behalf to arrange the change over. For more assistance please feel free to contact us on 13 14 63 Mon to Fri 8am – 8:30pm (AEST), Sat 8am – 1pm (AEST) and a helpful consultant will assess your needs to find the right cover for you.
Yes Adam from NIB is correct, continuity of cover is recognised and therefore no waiting periods. These guys from NIB will treat you like a person and not a number its easy to change over just give them a call.
All health funds are universally nice to you before you become a customer.
How do you claim extra with them? (Dental and optical), I'vee been with Medibank and looking to switch, with medibank I have to go to their member's provider
Hi Nancy, you are able to see any nib recognised dentist/optometrist in your area & receive your claimable benefits. For more information please give us a call on 13 14 63. Thanks, Renea
I am thinking of switching from Medibank to NIB because their premium is cheaper. I've got questions regarding claming their extras, normally I only use dental and optical, my question are can you go to any dentist to be able to claim 60% back? with medibank I can only go to their recommend provider to be able to claim, although they have extensive list of provider. and same question re optical, how do I claim
Hi Nancy, I've had no problem going to any dentist (Melbourne), I've been able to get all my cover back. And I've always used HICAPS and just paid the difference on the spot.
I've been a member for more then 10 years and will need a extensive dental work and a "crown".I would like a recommendation of a very good NIB Dentist (Sydney CBD)? Thank you
Nib dental centre 27-31 Hunter St Sydney
NIB Dental is also in Parramatta, diagonally across from the Parramatta Leagues Club.
As for a good dentist, I always ask for a gentle one, not one that has a heavy hand and seems like they want to freaking knock all your teeth out for a simple clean and de-scale . . .
