Health insurance generally only covers those items found in the Medicare Benefits Schedule. However, there are a number of funds who do make a contribution towards laser eye surgery.
If you have insurance with one of the health funds who do provide a rebate, we will provide you with a tax invoice for you to forward to your fund to make your claim.
