How to cut your family's health costs

cut your family's health costs

Payless, claim more

Start getting money back on the services and products your family needs to stay fit and healthy. Taking out extras cover is a great budgeting tool to help cover your everyday costs like kid’s immunisations, vitamins, dental checks, glasses, physio and way more.

Self-funding can be an option, but when you add up all the costs involved it gets pricey. Rather than skipping check-ups or delaying your appointments, be covered for the things you need to take proper care of your family’s health, like:

  • Yearly dental checks
  • Braces
  • Glasses – did you know 1 in 5 children have undiagnosed vision problems?
  • Physio visits
  • Travel vaccines for your Bali family holiday


Get great value cover that helps you save big! Plus your family will feel better and be healthier in the long run.

5 easy ways to cut your health costs with Extras Cover

Health Partners offer three levels of extras cover, so no matter your budget you'll get big benefits and loads of value.
1. The kid’s go free

Get 100% back for the kid’s dental checks, physio visits and glasses.

2. Use a Health Partners Pharmacy

You’ll pay a max of $37 for scripts – no exclusions! That includes contraception, vaccines like Meningococcal, travel vaccines etc.

Plus, save 20% on your health products like vitamins, pain relief, supplements and other wellness products at over 50 pharmacies across SA.

3. Visit a physio from only $12

We have a network of over 50 participating physios across SA. Each practice has been specifically chosen to ensure members have access to quality treatment.

4. Get money back at every dental check

A yearly dental check is one of the best ways to protect your family’s smile. Often, people worry about the bill and postpone the visit, again and again. Have peace-of-mind knowing that your check-up and cleans will always be covered.
