What the nib First Choice network is and how it can save you money

2 minute read

If you’ve decided it’s time to visit a local dentist for a check-up, or your eyesight isn’t quite what it used to be and you’re thinking you may need glasses, it can be tricky to work out which provider is going to be the best option for you or your family.

Because, it’s often not just about where they’re located, but also about their reputation and track record, opening hours and available appointments and whether they’ll charge you extra fees.

That’s why we created the nib First Choice network.

What is the nib First Choice network?

The First Choice network is a community of specially selected health providers who have agreed to provide nib customers quality healthcare and great customer service at an affordable price.

nib First Choice has always included dental treatment, now we’re excited to let you know that you can also enjoy great savings the next time you need a pair of glasses.

How does it work?

As an nib customer you can choose to see the dentist or optical provider of your choice, but by choosing an nib First Choice provider it simply means you could pay less.

Dentists who are part of our network have agreed to set treatment fees which are lower than the average fees charged by other dentists.

Optical providers who are part of our network will offer nib customers a discount when you purchase prescription glasses. Plus you can enjoy other exciting sales and offers available exclusively for nib customers throughout the year.

It’s as simple as that.

Don’t forget, as an nib customer you can receive:

  • 100% back on dental check-ups at nib Dental Care Centres
  • 100% back on a selection of single vision prescription glasses and 100% back on a selection of contact lenses at nib Eye Care Centres

Waiting periods, annual limits and other conditions may apply - so it’s a good idea to check your level of cover and remaining limits before you go. Call us on 13 14 63 or head to Online Services.
