Did you know child dental care can be bulk billed?
The Commonwealth Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBC) allows for basic dental treatment (up to $1000 in benefits) over a 2 year period for eligible 2-17 year olds.
2-17 year olds are eligible if they receive Family Tax Benefit A or other relevant Australian Government payments.
Treatment is bulk billed via Medicare.
Why choose IPC Health for your Child Dental Benefits Schedule?
We will complete your child’s general dental care at no cost to you if your child reaches the $1000 benefit limit.
Note: Specialist treatments such as orthodontic or cosmetic dental work will incur costs.
