Claiming your extras benefits has never been easier with so many options available.

nib Point of Service Claiming

nib Point of Service Claiming is the easiest way to claim. Just give your nib card to your registered service provider after your treatment. They'll swipe it through the HICAPS or IBA terminal (like an EFTPOS machine) and it will automatically calculate how much nib will pay for the service - all you do is pay the gap.

nib Online Claiming

nib Online Claiming lets you claim on your Extras 24/7 and your benefits will be paid into your nominated bank account (you can change this in nib Online Services).

Simply snap and submit your receipt and we will do the rest. Plus, we’ll pay Extras benefits like dental and chiro straight into your account in 2-4 days.

  • Attach the original prescription if you are claiming for Optical services

Attach receipts and accounts that are:

  • Original documents (not copies)
  • Written in English (helps us process them faster)
  • On the provider’s official stationery or have the provider’s official stamp
