What is the Child Dental Benefit Schedule?
The CDBS is a scheme run by Medicare that allows eligible families to have access to a benefit of $1,000 over a two-calendar year period. At our practice, we bulk bill under the CDBS, meaning your kids can receive the CDBS-covered treatments at no cost to you.
The CDBS provides individual benefits for a range of services including:
To be eligible, a child must be aged between 2-17 years and their family must receive Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.
Families can check whether their child is eligible for the CDBS by contacting the Department of Human Services. General information about the program can also be found on the Department of Human Services website.
