Item numbers are decided by the Australian Dental Association in a Schedule agreed by the Health Funds.
When your dentist recommends a plan of treatment, you will be provided with a quote. This requires a treatment plan specific for your solution, including all item numbers and dental fees. Discuss this information with your health fund and be advised of the amount they will contribute. This is known as the health fund rebate.
The rebate from any health fund is based on their policy, and the level of insurance you have purchased. Policy of cover and rebates differ between health funds, so it is important to make sure you are happy with your cover. Our dental fees reflect our costs.The difference between the rebate and the dental fees is known as ‘the gap’, or co-payment and is payable by you.
