Child Dental Benefit Schedule
Depending on your circumstances, your child may be eligible for Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).
The CDBS is a scheme which covers part or all of the cost of your child’s dental check-up and/or treatments. If your child is a Medicare card holder, aged between 2-17 years old, and has been getting payment for at least once a year, or has a parent receiving payment for at least once a year, they may be eligible.
Up to $1,000 can be covered over 2 calendar years for dental services such as check-ups, X-rays, cleaning, fillings, root canals and extractions. If required, you can use the entire allocation within the first year, or spread it across the 2-year period.
If you’re unsure whether you or your child qualify for CDBS, we can answer any questions you might have. Get in touch and our team more than happy to get you on the right financial path for treatment.
