Find an extras provider
Defence Health will pay benefits for any extras provider registered with their professional body and in the case of approved alternative therapies, those recognised by the Australian Regional Health Group, within the limitations of your cover.
This means you can choose any registered provider you like (subject to our General claiming conditions) and still receive great Defence Health benefits; remember to check your preferred provider is a registered provider when you make your appointment.
Many health care providers (like dentists, optometrists and physiotherapists) can swipe your member card on-the-spot through an electronic terminal, HICAPS or iSOFT.
Please note - Registration with HICAPS does not guarantee that providers are recognised by Defence Health or part of the preferred Defence Health networks. Visit our network pages to find our preferred dental network or optical network providers.
