Bulk Billing Dentist Sunshine Coast

CDBS rebate for children’s dentistry.

When it comes to getting your children quality dental that won’t break the bank, the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CBDS) is a lifesaver. At Diamond Dental Care, we often remind our clients how they can take advantage of this government scheme.

Who gets it?

If your child is eligible Services Australia will send you a letter.

Your child can get CDBS when all of the following applies:

  • they’re eligible for Medicare
  • they’re between 0 and 17 years old for at least one day that calendar year
  • you or they get an eligible payment at least once that calendar year.

What’s covered?

Up to $1,052 over 2 calendar years for basic dental services under CDBS. The cap amount is indexed yearly on 1 January. The increase in cap amount will only apply to a child or teenager who received their first eligible service in that calendar year. The services we’ll cover include any of these:

  • check-ups
  • X-rays
  • cleaning
  • fissure sealing
  • fillings
  • root canals
  • extractions

How do I check my eligibilty?

To find out if your child is eligible to be bulk billed through Medicare and their remaining balance, please fill in the form below, and we will be in contact.

We can bulk bill items under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. To find out up-to-date information, visit health.gov.au.
