From January 2014, the Department of Human Services – Medicare began this scheme which allows eligible children between the ages of 2 to years access to benefits for basic dental services. It replaces the existing Medicare Teen Dental Plan (MTDP).
Eligible children are provided a benefit entitlement which is capped at $1000 per child over a two calendar year period. The types of individual benefits for each child include examinations, x-rays, cleans, fissure seals, filliings, root canals and extractions. There are currently no benefits for cosmetic or orthodontic work paid by the CDBS. The CDBS requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.
Acacia Ridge Dental accepts all children eligible for the CDBS scheme and we bulk-bill the services directly to medicare with NO out of pocket expense to you.
