      How Are Claims Made

      Bupa gives you several easy and simple ways to make health insurance claims, including online and on the spot.

      On-the-spot health insurance claims

      Electronic claiming is the fastest way to make your medical insurance claims. Around 20,000 dentists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, podiatrists, naturopaths, remedial massages therapists, acupuncturists, exercise physiologists and optical outlets around Australia provide this service. After your treatment, swipe your membership card and the claim will be processed automatically. There are no forms for you to complete and you'll only pay the balance of the account.

      How to make a claim online

      Simply log into myBupa and enter the details found on your receipt via the ‘claim online' section. We'll transfer the payment directly to your bank account (have your BSB and account number ready).*

      *Not available for medical insurance claims on ambulance, health aids and appliances, orthodontics, travel and accommodation, pharmacy or medical claims.

      How to make a claim by post

      Fill out a claim form, attach your invoice and receipt and post to:

      Bupa Reply Paid 990
      Adelaide SA 5001

      and we'll make the payment by EFT or cheque.

      If you haven't provided your EFT details on the claim form, then a cheque will be sent directly to you.

      Where there is an unpaid amount the cheque will be made out to you but you may still need to settle any outstanding amount with your provider.

      Your statement of benefit will be sent to you in the mail.
