There is a monthly account keeping fee of $3.50 which will be direct debited whilst your account remains active and a $2.95 payment processing fee that is included with each fortnightly payment. You know exactly how much you will get charged as long as you stick with your payment schedule – No Interest Ever!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make a claim under the CDBS?

At Jones Dental we bulk bill for all eligible children under CDBS. This means you don’t need to submit a claim with Medicare, we do it all for you.

When you book your child’s appointment our receptionist will ask for their Medicare information so we can confirm eligibility. On the day make sure to bring your child’s Medicare card to the appointment so we can bulk bill. At the appointment your dentist will discuss with you your child’s treatment, costs and item restrictions. We will get you to sign a consent form agreeing to the services and acknowledge that the cost will be bulk billed, with no out of pocket expense. We then put the claim through to Medicare for you.

What services are available under the NDP?

There are no limitations on the types of dental services provided under NDP, however the total cost of treatment must be at least $400 and any amount up to $9000 can be approved for required dental treatment.

Your dentist will work with you to formulate a treatment plan based on your individual clinical and oral health needs.

How can I check if my child is eligible for CDBS?

Our receptionists can check for you if your child is eligible for the CDBS scheme. Simply call our surgery, provide us with your child’s current Medicare information and we can call Medicare for you.

Alternatively, you can check your child’s eligibility and current CDBS balance using your Medicare online account through My Gov or calling the Medicare general enquiries line on 132 011.
