8 Waiting periods and continuity of cover All health funds have waiting periods to protect members by encouraging people to maintain their health cover. A waiting period is a length of time applied to each new health cover and also applies when cover is upgraded. During this period, benefits are generally not payable. The RBHS will provide continuity of cover for anyone transferring from another registered Australian health fund or changing from another RBHS product provided that an equivalent or a higher level of cover was held. To be eligible for continuity of cover the transferring health cover must be financial and a Clearance Certificate must be provided by the previous health fund. If you have served part of your waiting periods with your previous health fund, you will receive waiting period credits when you transfer to RBHS for the portion you have already served. The following table outlines waiting periods for Extras cover. For more information on waiting periods, Clearance Certificates or continuity of cover, please call us on or Extras Cover Months Type of Waiting Period 2 12 Ambulance Physiotherapy Chiropractic & osteopath General dental Approved health management programs Other general treatment Optical & laser eye Major dental Health aids & screening IVF Please note that not all items are listed and other waiting periods may apply. Please contact the fund for more information. Limits For some benefits, there is a limit on the total amount the RBHS will pay each year. Benefits that can be claimed only once a year are renewed on 1 January each year. The two-, three- and five-yearly benefits are determined from the date the service is first provided. We recommend that you check with us before your service date to ensure that you will be covered. The service date is defined as the date of treatment or receipt of an item. Members planning any comprehensive and expensive health care should get a quote from the provider, including item numbers and associated costs, and ask us for details of the benefit(s) payable.
