Medicare – Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS)
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) commenced on 1st January 2014 and took the place of the Teen Dental Vouchers. At Ballarat Family Dental, we bulk-bill all patients eligible for CBDS so that any treatment billed under the scheme and within the limit attracts no extra fees to the patient.
CDBS provides access to benefits for basic dental services to children aged 2-17 years of age. This program is means tested, which means all eligible children, their parents, carer or guardian must receive an Australian Government payment such as Family Tax Benefit A. The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period.
The $1,000 entitlement covers a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. It does not cover for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work. View a complete list of the Government payments entitled to this program.
We accept Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) Gold and White cards for dental services including prevention treatment, all general dental services, the filling and crowning of teeth and the construction of dentures.
If you hold a DVA Gold or White card please call us at (03) 5337 6659 to book an appointment.
