Child Dental Benefit Schedule

Who is eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule?

    • Youth Allowance
    • ABSTUDY Allowance
    • Disability Support Pension
    • Parenting Payment
    • Special Benefit
    • Carer Payment
    • Double Orphan Pension
  • Treatment is bulk billed via Medicare
  • Eligible children pay $0 no out-of-pocket costs
  • No waiting – your child will have the next available appointment

Dental Services Covered by CDBS

Dental services covered by the CDBS include:

At Norlane Dental Surgery, we provide children’s dentistry services, such as dental care plans, treatments, and check-ups. *

How can I check if my child is eligible?

You don’t need to apply or register for CDBS. If your child is eligible, Medicare sends you a letter.

Confirm your child’s eligibility, access your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or call the Medicare general enquiries hotline on 132 011.

Eligibility is evaluated at the beginning of the calendar year. You or your child have to meet the requirements for at least one day of the year.

If you or your child is eligible during the calendar year, they will receive an allocation for the whole year. Anything you don’t spend in the first year will be carried over to the second year.

What if my child is not eligible?

Your child can still join the GuS (Grow Up Smiling) program with no out-of-pocket expense to the school or parents – as long as all needed information and records are submitted to their teacher by the school deadline.

How does the $1,000 dental benefits work?

You may use the benefit of $1,000 to pay for your child’s essential dental services over two years. If the funds are not fully used up within the first year, you can use them in the next year, provided your child is still eligible. After the second year, any remaining balance will not be carried forward or transferred.

To make sure that you’re aware of the costs upfront, your Norlane dentist will explain all probable expenses and get your consent in writing before the treatment starts.

If there’s any extra work needed following the initial examination, the costs will again be outlined, and your consent obtained.

This way, you can then decide how you use your $1000 allocation; you can use it all at once if needed or spread the spending out over the two calendar years.

If you’re not sure how much you have allocation left, your Norlane dentist can look that up for you, and let you know if you’ll be up for any out-of-pocket expenses.

Will I have to pay any out-of-pocket expenses?

As long as your remaining allocation amount can shoulder the fees for the appointment, you will not have to pay any out-of-pocket expenses.

Your benefit claim will be bulk billed through Medicare, so no patient co-payment is necessary.
