Members First Provider Network

Bupa Members First is an extensive network of healthcare professionals including dental, physiotherapy, chiropractic and podiatry providers. OSHC Extras is available exclusively through this network with the benefit of 100% cover on the set number of included services (subject to yearly visit limits)**. This means you won’t have to pay any out-of-pocket expenses when you visit a Members First Network provider. OSHC Extras does not cover any consultations at non-Bupa Members First healthcare providers.

This cover also allows you to access Members First rates for selected extras services at Member First healthcare providers even if you don’t receive a benefit under this cover. This means you will have certainty of cost for a wide range of services and consultations. For a list of Members First providers near you, visit

Extras services have an Initial Waiting Period of 2 Months

A waiting period is the time when you are not covered for a particular service. It starts on the date that you enter Australia or the date that you start your membership, whichever is the later date. If you receive a service or treatment during a waiting period, in this case two months, you are not eligible to receive a benefit payment from us, regardless of when you submit the claim.

Bupa Plus

Even when you’re in great health, there are still plenty of ways to get everyday value from your cover. See your exclusive range of rewarding health discounts, tools and more at

Remember: You can only claim these Extras benefits from Bupa Members First Providers. Remember to ask if your Extras healthcare professional is a Bupa Members First Provider before booking your appointment.
