How do I know where there’s a HCF Eyecare Centre near me?
We’ve listed the HCF Eyecare Centres on our website here. You’ll see details for the centres in Sydney (CBD), Parramatta, Hurstville, Chatswood, Bondi Junction, Brookvale, Burwood and Blacktown.
I’d like to make an appointment. How do I do this?
Booking online is easy. All you need to do is use the online system that provides appointment options for the Blacktown, Bondi Junction, Brookvale, Chatswood, Hurstville, Parramatta, Burwood and Sydney CBD centres.
You can also call the centre you want to attend (Find a Optical Provider details on our website here) to make your appointment or to find out more.
I really like my current optometrist or optical provider. Do I have to go to HCF Eyecare?
We know that getting the care you need and want is a very personal experience for our members. If you’ve found an optometrist or optical centre that meets your needs, please stick with them. The opening of HCF Eyecare Centres to you is just an additional advantage of your Transport Health membership.
The welcome offer sounds great. What do I need to do?
As a welcome, you’ll get $50 off glasses or sunglasses on your first visit to a HCF Eyecare Centre (or for ECN sunglasses via an online purchase), on top of your member discount. (Valid until 30 June 2022).
If you’re visiting an Eyecare Centre, the friendly team will know you’re a Transport Health member and they’ll apply your discount automatically.
If you’re making your sunglasses purchase online via the Online Shop (Products – HCF Eyecare), simply use the code welcome$50. You’ll be contacted by a member of the friendly team to organise payment.
Will my Transport Health membership card work?
It sure will. You’ll be able to use your Transport Health membership card and your benefit amounts will automatically be applied for you.
I don’t have Extras cover. Can I still visit a HCF Eyecare Centre?
You can. Your eye test/assessment is covered by Medicare and all offers available to rt health members will apply to you as well. You’ll just need to pay for your contacts or glasses.
There are no HCF Eyecare Centres near me. Why?
HCF’s Eyecare Centres are located in Sydney to provide services where there is the greatest population and concentration of members. However, you’re still able to access the great services and value provided by our list of Optical Providers including Specsavers, OPSM, Optical, Q Optical and clearly.com.au
Will Transport Health members get access to HCF Dental Centres? When?
Yes .. and we can’t wait! We’re looking forward to letting you know when we’ll be online with HCF’s Dental Centres. We promise this will be in the next couple of months.
What else should I expect as part of the merger?
In the coming months we’ll be keeping you posted on a range of other great benefits you can look forward to, including:
- Access to HCF Dental Clinics
- An improved health and wellbeing program
And, don’t forget about:
- Two months’ free health cover: If you were a member before 1 November 2021, you’ll receive one month free in November this year, followed by another month free in November 2023, as long as you remain a member with Transport Health. This amounts to a saving of hundreds of dollars for most members.
- We’re freezing premiums: As part of our ongoing commitment to always putting our members first, we’re passing on savings made due to COVID-19 back to our members in the form of no premium price increase until November 2022.
*Transport Health members will receive $50 off their glasses or sunglasses (in addition to the member discount) on their first visit to a HCF Eyecare Centre. Transport Health members can also use their $50 off on sunglasses purchased from the online store. Offer available until 30 June 2022 and can be used one purchase for glasses and sunglasses once only. The discount will not be available in conjunction with any other offer.
