PLEASE NOTE THAT THE STANDARD POLICY IS FULL PAYMENT ON THE DAY OF TREATMENT. IN CERTAIN CASES A DEPOSIT MAY BE REQUIRED PRIOR TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF TREATMENT.
Our fees are generally lower than most practices, but you still receive the quality, service and care with the most advanced technology available for dentistry today. How do we do it? That’s the secret of our practice managers to help our patients and transfer those savings to you.
Carindale Dental offers a selection of payment options for your convenience including cash, credit card, EFTPOS or HICAPS.
Carindale Dental is a preferred provider for Bupa, HCF and CBHS. This means patients in these health funds can claim a higher rebate from us than from other non-preferred provider practices.
For all patients who are members of Bupa, you will receive 60 – 100% (depending on your level of cover) of your claim back, up to your annual limit.
For all patients who are members of HCF and CBHS, you are entitled to 2 free examination and cleans every six (6) months fully covered by these funds.
MEDICARE CHILD DENTAL BENEFITS
At Carindale Dental we BULK BILL your child’s dental treatment under The Child Dental Benefits Schedule that commenced on 1 January 2014. It will provide benefits for basic dental services to around 3.4 million children aged 2-17 in families who meet a means test and certain eligibility criteria (e.g. receiving Family Tax Benefit part A or some other government payments).
Services for basic essential dental treatment, such as check-ups, scale and clean, x-rays, fissures sealants, fillings and extractions will be included under Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule. The total benefit entitlements will be capped at $1,000 per child over a two (2) calendar year period.
Families with eligible children aged 2-17 will receive a letter to confirm eligibility. If you haven’t received any letter and would like to find out if your child is eligible, please ring our surgery with your child’s Medicare number. We are able to log on to the medicare website to check if your child is eligible and any balance amount available.
