Child Dental Benefits Schedule
Medicare funded dental treatment for children.
Our practice provides all of the services covered by the CDBS.
How to check if your child / children are eligible?
If you are unsure, it’s quick and easy to check your eligibility. Simply ask at our reception and we will check on the spot. Alternatively you can call Medicare on 132 011 (7 days a week, 24 hours a day).
The CDBS is capped at $1000 per child over two consecutive calendar years. The program is means tested for those receiving Family
Tax Benefit Part A and some other government payments.
How does the $1000 cap work?
Eligible children may have up to $1000 of dental treatment over a two-year period. It begins at the start of the calendar year and any money not spent in the first year is carried over to the second year. You cannot claim benefits from both private health insurance and the CDBS Medicare funded treatment.
