MEDICARE CHILDREN’S BENEFIT SCHEDULE 2014
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (i.e. CDBS) provides access to benefits for basic dental services to children aged 2-17 years.
The CDBS has criteria to be eligible, which requires the receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or a relevant Australian Government payment.
The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. Any remaining balance will not be carried forward at the end of the second year.
At Dental Pro we do bulk bill for eligible kids, unless otherwise advised prior to the treatment or if the patient has no left fund with Medicare to cover the treatment.
We offer a range of services, including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work.
