Make an Appointment

You’ll receive a Medicare rebate for your eye examination, except for some contact lens consultations. If you have private health insurance, you may also be eligible for benefits on the purchase of glasses and contact lenses. Your private health insurer can confirm your optical entitlements.

Medicare provides optometrists to bill the government on behalf of their patients directly.

This is also known as bulk-billing’. Most optometrists direct bills on behalf of pensioners and the disadvantaged. This means that people on low incomes can easily access quality eye care without having to contribute from their own pockets.

To ensure that you receive your Medicare refund quickly, present your Medicare card whenever you visit your optometrist and whenever you claim benefits from Medicare. The card has your Medicare number and is proof that you are eligible for Medicare benefits. You will need to quote this number when making a claim. If your optometrist bills Medicare directly on your behalf, simply present your card when you have an examination.

You do not need a referral from a medical practitioner to receive Medicare benefits for eye examinations given by optometrists. Simply contact your local optometrist and arrange an appointment.
