Starting from January 2014, the Commonweath provides assistance for 2 to 17 year olds through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). For those eligible, please inform us when you are making the appointment for your child/children. We need to check your eligibility and the amount of benefit entitled. Please bring the patient’s Medicare card to the appointment.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is BULK BILLED at this practice. That is, there is no out-of-pocket expenses.
We have on-site claiming via our HICAPS terminal. This means that all claims are submitted on the spot at our practice without the need to visit a Medicare office.
