The conditions for medical expenses loans on Harmoney are the same as for most of our personal loans. We’ll tell you what documents you need to provide during your simple online application.
What can I use a medical loan for?
A medical expenses loan can help to cover your medical bills as well as other costs related to your treatment and recovery, from medication to travel, or living costs if you’re taking time off work.
Medical loans from Harmoney aren’t tied to a specific health issue or health care provider, so you can borrow money for a dental loan, cosmetic surgery loan or any other purpose.
Can I combine my loan with my health insurance?
If you can use your health insurance to pay some of your medical expenses, that could mean you don’t need to borrow as much on a loan, which will make repayment easier. Check with your health fund provider if you’re not sure what’s covered.
Do I need to use a certain health provider?
No, Harmoney medical loans are not tied to any specific medical provider or insurer. You’re free to use any private or public health service you choose, just let us know your plans when you apply for your loan.
Can I increase an existing loan?
If you need more money, you might be able to top up an existing Harmoney loan (if you’ve been making repayments for 6 months already) or you might consider a refinancing option such as debt consolidation.
Read our Top Up guide to find out if you’re eligible.
What happens if I there are changes to my financial circumstances?
If you’re finding it challenging to keep up with your repayments as planned, due to illness, loss of employment or other circumstances, talk to us. There are options and you may qualify for unforeseen hardship. The key thing is to get in touch early so we can work through it together.

About dental expenses loans
If you damage or lose a tooth, your gums are infected or you have another dental emergency, delaying treatment because you can’t afford it can risk making problems worse. A dental expenses loan provides help when you need it.
What is a dental expenses loan?
A dental loan is a type of personal loan that can be taken out to cover dental expenses. This includes the cost of dental services themselves and other related costs such as sedation, hospital stays and medication.
How does it work?
You can apply for a dental expenses loan before you pay your dentist so you won’t be out of pocket. You can ask your dentist for an estimate of how much your treatment will cost so you know how much you need to borrow. You should also check your health insurance or other finance options to see if any of your dental costs will already be covered.You can apply for a dental expenses loan online through Harmoney. We’ll ask for details about what you intend to use the loan for and ask you to provide proof of your identity and finances so we can calculate your personal interest rate and repayments. If you accept your loan offer, we’ll send your money to your bank account and you should have it within 24 hours.
Secured and unsecured dental loans
Dental loans may be secured or unsecured. A secured loan requires that you nominate an asset (such as a house, car or other valuable belongings) that may be forfeited if you fail to pay back your loan. An unsecured loan isn’t protected by an asset, but may have a higher interest rate as a result.All personal loans on Harmoney are unsecured, including dental expenses loans.
Fixed and variable rates
Interest rates on a loan may be fixed or variable. A fixed rate remains the same through the duration of the loan, unless it’s refinanced. A variable interest rate can change each month based on the performance of the market.
A fixed rate loan offers more financial security, as you can budget for how much you need to pay each month. All Harmoney loans have a fixed interest rate.
Other dental finance options
Some dental clinics work with third-party finance providers to let you pay for dental work in instalments. These often have an interest-free period that can be tempting, but they usually involve more fees than a dental loan and there may be higher penalties if you don’t make your repayments.
Dental payment plans
A dental expenses loan may not be the best option for everyone. Researching the other types of finance available to you will help you to make an informed decision about how to cover your dental costs.
Private health insurance
If your health insurance includes general dental cover, you may be covered for some or all of the cost of general dental treatments such as check-ups, fillings, extractions and crowns. More complex treatments and cosmetic procedures are not covered by standard health insurance, but may be included on a higher level of cover.If you want to use your health insurance to cover part of your dental fees, a dental loan can make up the rest.
