The Child Dental Benefits Schedule allows up to $1000 in coverage for each child who is eligible during two consecutive years. Your child can use all of the coverage during the first year or roll part of it into the second—provided eligibility has not changed.
If your child or teen is eligible for this program, you will receive a letter with more details from the government. However, children aged 2 to 17 who can receive Medicare—and if the family gets the Family Tax Benefit Part A—should be candidates for this schedule.
What is Covered in the Child's Dental Benefits Programme?
The Child Dental Benefits Programme covers the following:
- Dental exams
- Teeth cleanings
- Fissure sealants
- Dental fillings
- Root canal treatments
If your child is a candidate for this program, we encourage you to arrange an appointment. We recommend informing our office that you plan to utilize the Child Dental Benefits Schedule as well. A team member will provide further instructions and answer any questions that you might have.
