Child Dental Benefits Schedule
What is the CDBS?
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. More information on the Child Dental Benefit Schedule can be found here.
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.
Is my child eligible?
The CDBS is 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.
