    Using Medical Insurance to pay for Fishing Tackle!



    I've just made my 1st claim for Fishing Tackle(Saltwater flyreel) on my Medical Insurance. I think this is an awesome!!!

    I got back about 40% back, and have just about used my limit.

    I suggest anyone with medical insurance check there policy or consider changing.

    I think I'll get a conventional Billfish outfit next year.

    Hey Fellas'
    Yeah i did the same. My fund, you spend at least $150 you get back $100. You can do this twice a year(every 6 months). so for $300 a year you get back $200, better than nothing.

    Luke & Muzza,

    I have MBF Diamond cover in QLD. I think MBF are waving most of the waiting times if you join before the end of Sept.

    I think a family can claim up to $400 per year on sport equipment. I've got new sport shoes for the whole family too(I think this limit is seperate to the sport equipment limit because I've got a couple of $100 back on shoes already).

    I suggest you give your health insurance a call and find out if your covered.

    Muzza, I think it was your post about getting the cost of the fly rod back through health insurance, that got me to change my level of cover. Thanks.

    Hey Wes,
    Mate good stuff, these days it all helps to get something back. I just gotta get a handle on this fly outfit now. The funny thing is flickin around in the yard is fun , so I reckon I'll be blown away when I start hookin fish on it.
    Cheers
