Take advantage of the Child Dental Benefits Schedule with up to $1,000 of dental services Bulk Billed over two years.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a dental benefits program for eligible children aged 2-17 years that provides up to $1,000 in benefits to the child for basic dental services.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule replaces the Medicare Teen Dental Plan from 1st January 2014.
Services that receive a benefit under the program include:
- Scale / Clean / Fluoride
- Fissure Sealing
- Root Canals
- Partial Dentures
Many of these services have claiming restrictions. Services can be provided in public or private dental clinics. Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.
As with the Medicare Teen Dental Plan, the payment of benefits under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule will be administered through the Department of Human Services.
At Conder Medical and Dental Centre, we are proud to support such a fantastic scheme. Under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule we will provide all eligible dental services under Bulk Billing system.
