How to Claim

Navy Health Ltd is currently contracted by the Department of Defence to perform all claims processing for the National ADF Family Health Program.

There is an online claim limit of $1000. For amounts greater than $1000 a manual claim will be required.

All claims must be submitted within 12 months from date of service. Any claim received that is over 12 months from the service date will not be paid.

There are several ways you can claim your ADF Family Health benefits:

  • At the point of sale, using your ADF Family Health Card (if the provider has a HICAPS terminal, you can locate a provider with HICAPS here);
  • By utilising the online claiming functionality
  • By using the ADF Family Health mobile claiming App:
  • By faxing or posting your receipts with a Manual Claim Form to Navy Health

The Quick Guide below provides more detail on how to claim your benefits. For further information on how to claim call 1300 561 454.
