Medicare Bulk Billing

Medicare benefits do offer bulk billing relief for some essential dental services for those who are eligible at Putney Dental Care.

If you have children eligible for the Medicare CDBS then our Sydney dentistry will bulk bill – this means you do not need to pay a gap for your child’s dental care treatment.

The payments are only available to families who are already receiving other government benefits.

Eligibility Criteria

All children under 18 and who are eligible for Medicare can access free public dental services in New South Wales. Eligible children may also be entitled to the Commonwealth’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule.

Dental Benefits for Kids (Child Dental Benefits Schedule)

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is an Australian Government program that provides $1,000 over 2 calendar years for children aged 2 to 17 for basic dental services.

At Putney Dental Care, we bulk bill for the CDBS. What this means is that you will not need to pay a gap, or submit a claim. If you are unsure of your eligibility you can contact Medicare.

Ensure that you bring your medicare card and after your dental appointment, we will bulk bill your treatment costs.

Dental Services Provided

The following services can be bulk billed to Medicare utilising the CDBS:

Dental Services Not Provided

The following services cannot be bulk billed to Medicare utilising the CDBS:

  • Children’s orthodontic dental treatment
  • Cosmetic dental work
  • Dental services requiring a hospital visit

If these dental services are required for your child’s oral health, we will attempt to accommodate your lifestyle and budget as best as we can.

Dental Costs

Putney Dental provides bulk billing so you do not need to pay us for services and claim back your payment from Medicare if you have not claimed more than $1,000 per child within two calendar years.

Once you have provided us with your consent and your child’s Medicare card details, at the conclusion of the visit we will process the Bulk Billing claim directly with Medicare and issue you with an invoice so you can track your child’s CDBS limit.
