Child Dental Benefits Schedule
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides eligible families with children aged 2-17 years old with access to a benefit of up to $1,000 for eligible dental services over a 2 calendar year period. At Holdsworth House Dental Practice, we charge fees in line with the Medicare Schedule. This means that for the bulk of treatment, you will receive a 100% refund from Medicare.
The CDBS continues to be means tested by the Government.
Your child is eligible if:
- They are eligible for Medicare;
- They are between the age of 2 and 17 years old for at least 1 day that year; and
- You, or they, receive an eligible payment at least once that year. Eligible government payments include the Family Tax Benefit Part A and the Parenting Payment.
