Our practice has access to the HICAPS system. This EFTPOS system allows eligible private health members to swipe their card at the end of their appointment. Your rebate automatically pays your benefit electronically to the practitioner and any outstanding amount will be known straight away so you can settle your account.
Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS)
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides basic dental services to children aged between 2 and 17 years. Dental services are capped at $1000 over 2 consecutive calendar years. The 2 year cap period starts when a child or teenager first gets an eligible dental service.
Dental services include:
- fissure sealing
- root canals
- extractions, and
- partial dentures
CDBS doesn’t cover orthodontic, cosmetic dental work, or dental services provided in hospital.
If your child is eligible for this scheme, they can expect no out of pocket expense for the above mentioned services. Please phone our friendly reception staff to assist you in determining your eligibility.
