What are the steps to claiming?


Our online claiming process follows six steps. Once you're registered and logged in, click the Make a claim tab to get started. 


  1. Treatment Date - The first step is letting us know the date you had your treatment or the date your treatment started. 
  2. Claimant - The next step is selecting the claimant making the claim.
  3. Treatment - The third step has two fields. First, pick the treatment you received from the list of options, and then let us know how much the treatment or appointment cost.  
  4. Receipts - This is where we'll need proof of treatment. Upload a copy of your receipt/s from the health treatment you received. We accept the following file formats: pdf, jpg, jpeg, gif, png. 
  5. Confirmation - That's all we need. Before submitting your claim, we'll ask you to confirm all the details are correct. 
  6. Complete - The final step is to complete your claim. Once sent, our team will review the details, and if approved, you'll have the money back within three working days.  
How do I upload a photo of my receipt?


All claims require a digital copy of your receipt as proof of treatment. Our claiming portal has been designed to make this process as seamless as possible, but we're always happy to help out. 


To make a digital copy of your receipt, you can:


  • Take a photo using your phone or tablet, and upload the image directly from the camera roll when prompted. 
  • Use a scanner, and upload the file from your computer when requested.


For receipts that have been emailed to you as an attachment, you can download the file from your email and then upload when prompted in the claiming portal.


Our accepted file formats are standard .jpg, .png, .gif, .pdf (PDFs must be less than 10mb).


If you have any questions on uploading images, or the portal isn't playing ball, please get in touch at [email protected]. or start a live chat.

Some of our FAQs


When can I claim?

You can start claiming straight away, for treatment had on or after your start date. This is subject to any relevant qualifying periods, or exclusions.

When will I receive money back from my claim?

Once received, we aim to process claims as quickly as possible. However, if information is missing from the claim form or receipt, this can take longer to process. And we may ask you for additional info.

Paid claims can take an additional three to five working days to arrive in your account. This depends entirely on your bank, and is beyond our control.

What if my details are incorrect on my claim form?

You can use a form with incorrect details. We mostly need your policy number and the barcode to be clearly visible.

Be sure to update your details when possible. You can do so through your online account, or by contacting us.

Can I make a claim offline?

We do encourage the use of our Online Self Service due to the ease, speed, and reliability. But if you’d prefer to make a postal claim, you'll need to fill in a claim form and post it back to us with your appointment receipt.

Requesting a claim form is quick and simple via our online form or via live chat.
