$1000 for eligible children aged 2-17 years of age.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is the perfect opportunity to bring your child in for a dental check-up and clean, especially if you require a dentist on Brisbane's Northside who have the experience in treating children.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is an Australian Government initiative that benefits general dental service for children aged 2-17 years of age. The total benefit provided is capped at $1000 per child over two calendar years. Eligibility for the scheme is determined each year and the funded benefits will be available to use for two years.
A variety of treatment options that come under basic dental service are available under this benefit scheme. This includes check-ups, x-rays, fillings, and extractions.
If you are unsure if your children are eligible for this scheme, our staff can contact Medicare to access your eligibility information for you. We will also be able to check your child’s remaining balance with Medicare also. If you would like any further information on what is involved for the eligibility test we can also provide you with these details.
To find out of your child is eligible for yourself, you can access the information via your Medicare online account at my.gov.au. Your child’s eligibility and the balance amount will be listed for you here.
