Benefit changes October 2020

Dental benefit reductions

To ensure the long-term sustainability of your fund, we’ve had to reduce some dental benefits payable on extras cover. Even after these changes on 1 October, you can be confident your dental benefits remain competitive.

Changes to optical benefits

VSP Global is withdrawing its operations in Australia. That means some of the optometrists previously under the VSP Vision Care brand will no longer be part of our optical network from 1 October. We're pleased to share that we've partnered with Q Optical Network and  George & Matilda Eyecare. Visit our Optical network page to find out more. 

We’re removing the benefit for ‘other lens options’ (such as UV tinting) from 1 October, in line with industry practice. You will continue to be eligible for a 20% discount from Specsavers for these optical add-ons (rather than claiming up to 100% of the cost through your annual optical limit for frames and repairs).
