Child Dental Benefits Schedule
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a scheme run by Medicare that provides eligible children up to $1,000 over 2 calendar years to pay for a range of dental services. It’s aimed at families who are already receiving other benefits, such as Family Tax Benefit A payments.
If your child is eligible, the CDBS will cover dental services including examinations, x-rays, routine cleaning, repairing cracked teeth, fillings, root canals and extractions. It doesn’t cover orthodontic treatment (such as braces to straighten crooked teeth), any dental work that needs to be done in hospital, or cosmetic dental procedures (such as replacing missing teeth).
To check if your child is eligible visit: http://www.health.gov.au/cdbs Or Call – 13 24 68.
