When a Child is eligible for Child dental benefits schedule, they would have received a letter from the Australian Government confirming their eligibility. The program was launched in the year 2014 and it provides children and teens aged 2-17 up to $1000 reimbursements in basic dental services. The capped benefit can be claimed over a 2-year period.
The basic services included as part of Child dental benefits schedule are dental examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extraction. There are other dental services like cosmetic dental treatments, orthodontic dental procedures, teeth straightening or, procedures which would be performed in a hospital which are not included in the Child dental benefits schedule.
Medicare determines whether a child is eligible for Child dental benefits schedule based on their age, their Medicare status, and if the child receives other benefits from the government. Once the child is eligible for Child dental benefits schedule, there is generally no waiting period and one can take the next available appointment.
