Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule

 

 

 

 

 

 

Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) commenced on 1 January 2014 and provides access to benefits for basic dental services to around 3.4 million children aged 2-17 years. The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or a relevant Australian Government payment.

Who is eligible for dental services under the Child Dental Services Benefits?

Eligible families will receive written notifications from the Australian Government from early 2014, alternatively call us on 8677 1021 to check your eligibility.

What dental services will the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme cover?

A comprehensive range of dental services will be covered, including dental assessments, X-rays, preventive services, extractions, fillings, restorative work and dentures. Eligible children and teenagers may access Medicare benefits of up to $1000 in total over two consecutive calendar years for dental services.

At Wentworthville Family Dental we bulk bill Medicare with No Gap (No out of pocket co-payment) for your convenience.
