Private Health Insurance Claims
We are online with most health funds via the HICAPS system so claims can be processed electronically on the day.
Some insurers are attempting to influence patients and dentists to participate in their 'preferred provider' schemes. These schemes are designed to provide patients to dentists through an arrangement with the health fund.
The term 'preferred' is misleading as it refers to preference of the insurer based on the cost to the insurer.
We do not participate in these schemes, as we do not believe in contracted dentistry.
We wish to be able to provide the current high standard of service to our patients without any restrictions to the decision making process with our patients or the proper execution of high quality dental care.
Our aim with all our patients is to 'restore and prevent' for the long term. Lower quality dentistry will not achieve this and may even cause more complex and costly problems later.
Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)
Eligible children that need to see a dentist can do so without any out of pocket expense from this Medicare funded scheme. The CDBS commenced in Australia at the start of 2014 and assists eligible families with up to $1000 worth of selected general treatment per child over a 2 calendar year period.
