Health Fund Claims and Medicare
We offer HICAPS for on the spot health fund claiming.
It is most important that you bring your health fund card on the day of treatment as your card needs to be swiped through the HICAPS machine, unfortunately we can’t just key in the numbers.
If you do not have your health fund card, you will need to pay for the account in full and claim back from your health fund. This can be quite a simple process online.
On the spot claiming with Medicare can be used for Child Dental Benefit Schedule.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a scheme run by Medicare that provides eligible children up to $1,000 over 2 calendar years to pay for a range of dental services.
Please check with Medicare to ensure your child is eligible for this scheme. Phone Medicare on 132150 or visit Medicare
