Do you often wonder about dental insurance for yourself and your family? Deciphering what is covered and what isn’t on a policy can sometimes create confusion when visiting the dentist, and what about children? Fortunately, many children can receive dental care in Australia under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).
What is the Child Benefits Dental Programme?
Like everyone, children need regular dental care and upkeep to safeguard their oral health. The CDBS is a government programme covering eligible children for up to $1000 over two consecutive years. The eligibility requirements are as follows:
- The individual needs to be 17 years of age or younger
- The individual’s family receives relevant Australian Government payments or Family Tax Benefit Part A
