Child Dental Benefits Scheme

Here at Pimpama City Dental Centre, we can treat both children and adults and are always available to help you get your best smile. We also offer bulk billing through the Child Dental Benefit Scheme for eligible children.

What is Bulk Billing?

When we bulk bill, it means we submit your dental bill directly to Medicare and we accept the Medicare Benefit Fee for the treatment we provide you. This means you will not have to pay anything on the day for your child’s dental treatment as long as they have credit and are eligible, but we still get paid. It works well for both parties and is a benefit we like to offer to all of our patients.

At Your Appointment

Usually, you’ll need to sign a form that allows us to claim your Medicare benefit. Without this service, you’d have to pay up front and wait for Medicare to reimburse you directly. By allowing us to collect that fee, you don’t have to come up with the money up front and can still access the treatment you need.

Benefits of Bulk Billing

In addition to the financial benefits described above, there’s also a lot more to love about bulk billing. It saves you a lot of time and effort since you won’t have to do all the paperwork to get your money back. It’s easy to get it done this way and prevents you from having to forgo dental treatment due to time and money constraints.

What’s Not Covered?

While we do use bulk billing in our office, it’s important to know that not all dental procedures are covered by Medicare, and therefore won’t be eligible for bulk billing. If you’re unsure about this, we can help you determine what’s covered and what’s not. That way there are no surprises on either end.
