Can I get more information?

With Simple Extras, regardless of your provider, you get the same amount back per visit, up to your annual limits. Simple Extras also offers 100% back on optical, up to annual limits. See your fact sheet below for a list of benefits per service.

Yes. Frank believes in freedom of choice, so we pay the same benefits to any registered provider. This means you can use your regular dentist, optometrist or physio and still claim.

Yes, on most services you will have to serve a waiting period if you’re new to health insurance. With Frank (and most health insurers) you have to wait a specific amount of time between signing up and making your first claim. This is called a waiting period.

All Frank extras services have the following waiting periods:

  • 0 days for ambulance
  • 2 months for included extras (except for Optical, Major Dental, Podiatry Surgery and Orthotics)
  • 6 months for Optical
  • 12 months for Major Dental, Podiatry Surgery and Orthotics

Find out more about waiting periods here.

The good news is that waiting periods may not apply if you’re coming to Frank from another fund. Find out more about switching to Frank here.

Yes there are. This might make us sound mean but if you have a read, you'll see they're fair. If you’re interested, check out the list of things Frank won’t pay on here.
