5. Will dental treament cover by Medicare?
Yes, we bulk bill The Medicare Teen Dental Plan, which will be replaced with the Child Dental Benefits Schedule from 1 January 2014.
Eligible teens will be able to access the Medicare Teen Dental Plan until 31 December 2013. Benefits will continue to be paid for services provided to eligible teenagers before the date of closure.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule provides a capped benefit entitlement for basic dental services for children aged 2-17 in families who meet a means test. The means test will be the same as the existing Medicare Teen Dental Plan, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or other certain government payments.
Services for basic essential dental treatment, such as check-ups, x-rays, fillings and extractions will be included, and patients will have access to dental benefit entitlements capped (indexed annually) over a two calendar year period. For 2014, the benefit is capped at $1000 per child.
