HEALTH INSURANCE & BENEFITS
We are proud partners with HCF, which means HCF members with extras cover will receive a higher rebate on a range of preventive and diagnostic services. Most HCF members will receive 100% rebate on examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fluoride treatment and mouthguards with no out-of-pocket expense (subject to annual limits). For more information, call 13 13 34, visit www.hcf.com.au or log on to your account.
CHILD DENTAL BENEFITS SCHEME (CDBS)
For those who are eligible for the Federal Government's Child Dental Benefits Scheme, we offer bulk-billed treatment up to the prescribed $1000 over a two calendar year period. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment. The Child Dental Benefit Schedule provides individual benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions.
If you are unsure of eligibility you can phone Medicare on 13 20 11 or contact our friendly staff to inquire on your behalf. Please inform reception when making an appointment if your children are eligible for the scheme so they can prepare the related paperwork.
We offer bulk-billing for all eligible Veterans’ Affairs card holders. All gold card holders receive free dental treatment (in accordance with DVA dental schedule – some restrictions apply). White card holders can check eligibility by phoning 1900 555 254. Available treatment includes preventive dental, general dental, major dental and denture services.
We have a HICAPS facility on site, which means on-the-spot claiming for any insurance rebates can be done using your private health fund card.
Our practice accepts major credit cards; cash and EFTPOS services are also available.
We aim to help out our patients understand the price for every treatment we provide. We want to give you affordable and reasonable dental treatment with no hidden costs.
