    About Eyecare

    At Teachers Health Fund Eyecare we understand teachers and the education community better than anyone else and have been servicing Teachers Health Fund members since 1994.

    Our Eyecare centres are equipped with the latest technology and we aim to give our members a high quality eye examination. Our experienced Optometrists test for a range of eye conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts. Our centres provide a range of tests to cover all of your eye health needs:

    • Comprehensive eye examination – bulk billed to Medicare*
    • Contact lens consultations
    • Auto refraction
    • Retinal photography
    • Visual field tests
    • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) – currently available in Surry Hills, Parramatta, and Richmond.

    We recommend that regular eye examinations be scheduled every 2 years to assess your vision and test the health of your eyes.

    Your Rebate

    All Australian residents, who are entitled to Medicare, are able to claim an income tested rebate on their private health insurance; would you like to apply your rebate?

    For individuals earning between $88,001 - $102,000 (or $176,001 - $204,000 for families*).
    *For families with children, the thresholds are increased by $1,500 for each child after the first.

    How rebate tiers workX

    Most Australians with private health insurance currently receive a rebate from the Australian Government to help cover the cost of their premiums. The private health insurance rebate is income tested. The table below details the different rebate amounts and Medicare Levy Surcharge levels.

    The rebate applies to hospital, general treatment and ambulance policies. It does not apply to overseas visitors cover. The rebate levels applicable for 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014 are:

    < Age 6530%20%10%0%
    Age 65-6935%25%15%0%
    Age 70+40%30%20%0%

    Single parents and couples (including de facto couples) are subject to family tiers. For families with children, the thresholds are increased by $1,500 for each child after the first.
