CDBS is here to stay!
Kite Street Dental is happy to let all our patients know that we are still accepting Orange patients on the Children Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS). Over the past 9 months the scheme has been under review. Proposed changes included scrapping the scheme all together or reducing the capped amount allowed from $1000 to $700 over a 2 year period.
After much petitioning from the Australian Dental Association and other health bodies it would appear the scheme is here to stay – and that the capped amount for patients will stay at $1000 for general dental treatment! We pay great homage to the ADA for their tireless efforts to look after the future dental health of our kids!
For patients that are eligible to receive care under the scheme we only charge the amount you will receive back from medicare. That means no extra expenses and after lodging your bill with medicare the money is back in your account usually within 24 hours. If you want to check if your children are eligible for the scheme or need any further information head to https://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/services/medicare/child-dental-benefits-schedule
Once you’re all checked out give the girls on the front desk a call on 6362 8770 and book your appointment now!
