You get unlimited B&W single or double sided X-rays for out-of-hospital events on the Radiology benefit. As often as you need them, no limit.
Radiology is part of the Day-to-Day Plan with cover for all of this and more.
The Radiology Benefit is designed to give you access to black & white, single or double sided X-rays for out-of-hospital events. It also includes ultrasound sonar scans during pregnancy.
The benefit is unlimited which means that it can be used as many times during the year as is medically needed. There is no limit on the number of X-rays you can have.
Prenatal (pregnancy) ultrasound scans are limited to one in the first trimester and one in the second trimester (making a total of two).
Other scans like MRI and CT scans are not covered under Day-to-Day benefits. These may be covered under your Hospital benefits if you've included them in your plan.
The benefit is unlimited but not uncapped. The limits are stated and the various protocols will apply. Most of the radiology procedures are fully covered but if the radiologist needs to perform a procedure that is not fully covered then you may have to pay in.
If you are unsure about what is covered then it is best to consult your network doctor about it or speak to us and we can assist.

The only conditions are that the claim or consultation is medically necessary.
Unlimited benefits are usually managed. This means that pre-authorisation is needed after a certain number of times that the benefit is used to ensure that it is you utilising the benefit and that you are getting the proper care that you deserve. You can find more details on the Network page.
The waiting period on the Radiology Benefit is 1 month.
