Tips for Claiming
- Check that the scan or photo of the item you wish to claim is legible and that all details can be clearly seen. If double sided or if your provider has stamped the back, scan or photograph both sides. Generally, we need:
- Date of the service/purchase
- Name and registration number of your provider
- Name of the person who received the service or product
- A description of the item being claimed
- We may require additional details for claiming on some items such as a Doctor’s letter. This is common when claiming on appliances so call our Customer Service Representative to confirm requirements before submitting your claim.
- Ensure the receipt is not cut, ripped and that no details have been cut off by the scanner. If you send us a scan/photo that is missing details or that we can’t read, we’ll email you back and ask for a new scan or photo, letting you know what you can do to help us process your claim successfully.
- If you want to claim only some items on a larger receipt, do this by marking those items with an asterisk or underlining them. Please DO NOT highlight these items as highlighted items generally become illegible in our software.
- If claiming orthodontic, nominate in the ‘Additional Notes’ section an amount you would like to reserve of your annual dental limit.
Images taken and submitted on a newer smartphone are of incredible high quality and file size. The quality of the photo is so high, that it doesn’t load fast enough. As you start uploading the image, the claim form allows you go through the pages of the claim. If you submit before the image is fully loaded, it will not be received by our Claims Team.
- Solution 1: Start uploading the image. Before moving to the next page, wait longer to give the file a better chance at loading completely.
- Solution 2: Compress the file in ‘Gallery’ before uploading it to a claim. This will make it a smaller file size and it will load faster.
- There is no file size as a perfect example. Visual quality of the photo depends on the lighting in the image and how blurry the image is to read. Please continue to submit claims trying these two solutions. Remember that if you are uploading a high quality large file, it will need to be loaded completely before you press ‘Send’.
