Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule
VC Dental supports the Medicare CDBS:
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a new Government scheme for eligible children aged 2-7 years to receive $1000 of dental benefits. Eligible families will receive a confirmation letter from January 2014. This initiative has replaced the Medicare Teen Dental Vouchers that ceased in December 2013. The benefit cap of $1000.00 is available for a two year period.
The $1000.00 dental cap provides for basic dental treatment such as examinations, radiographs, hygiene maintenance, restorations and extractions. The dental services provided for under this scheme will be bulk billed and you will have no additional out of pocket expense.
We will provide full detailed treatment plans for all treatment required so you will always be aware of what is being received.
On making an appointment with us please advise if you are eligible under this scheme and provide us with your Medicare number and your child’s date of birth. You must bring with you to your appointment your child’s Medicare card and the letter from the Family Assistance office.
If you would like more information please contact our friendly reception team on 02 4323 1933 or alternatively you can visit the Department of Human Services website: www.humanservices.gov.au/childdental or contact the Medicare general enquiries line on 132 011.
