Frequently Asked Questions

How would I know if my child is qualified for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule?
No application is needed for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. If your child is eligible, Medicare will then send you a letter.

To know if your child is eligible for CDBS, access your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or contact Medicare general enquiries hotline: 132 011.

How do I use the $1013 benefit?
Take advantage of the $1013 benefit to pay for your child’s basic dental services in the span of two years.

If the funds are not fully used up in the first year, you can still use them in the next year only if your child is still in the program.

After the second year, any balance will not be carried forward.

Will I have to pay out-of-pocket expenses?
As long as your balance can cover the fees for your child’s appointment, you don’t need to pay any out-of-pocket expenses.

Your claim will be bulk-billed through Medicare, so no patient co-payment is needed.
