Brisbane Smiles participates in the Children’s Dental Benefits Schedule. CDBS allows eligible children up to $1013 worth of dental treatment over a two-year period.
Your child can get CDBS benefits when they are eligible for Medicare; they are between 2 and 17 years old for at least 1 day that year; you or they get an eligible payment at least once that year (Child’s parent: Family Tax benefit Part A, Parenting Payment, Double Orphan Pension, Abstudy. Child: Family Tax Benefit Part A, Carer Payment, Disability Support Pension, Parenting Payment, Special Benefit, Youth Allowance).
Benefits: The CDBS will cover up to $1,013 over 2 calendar years for basic dental services under CDBS, including:
Claims and Payments: For CDBS eligibility rules, terms and conditions, and up-to-date limits visit the Services Australia CDBS website. Our team will need to log in to ensure eligibility and limits. The parent/Guardian must sign a Medicare Consent Form prior to treatment commencing. At your child’s appointment, the team will discuss what each service will cost and if the CDBS will cover these services. Any costs not covered by CDBS will be the sole responsibility of the patient and parent/guardian for immediate payment. If we are unable to make a claim on your behalf on the day of service, you will need to make full payment and you will need to claim the CDBS portion from Services Australia later. You can often do this straight after you have paid through the Express Plus Medicare mobile app or your medicare online account through myGov, otherwise in person or via post.
