Extras cover

There are treatments not covered by Medicare or hospital cover that fall under extras cover. They can include services like dental, chiropractic, optical and physiotherapy. What’s more, TUH members can use any licensed dentist or optometrist in Australia.

Extras cover can also include telehealth services. These are services delivered via phone or video. They include, physio, psychology, occupational therapy and more.


While some Australian residents are covered by their state, most Aussies will need some form of ambulance cover. With TUH, you’re entitled to ambulance cover if you have both hospital and extras insurance.
