Item numbers are determined by the Australian Dental Association in a Schedule agreed by the Health Funds.
When your dentist recommends a plan of treatment, you can ask for a quote. A detailed treatment plan specifically for you will include all treatment item numbers and fees. Your health fund can then advise you, based on your policy inclusions, of the amount they will contribute for each service item. This is known as the ‘health fund rebate’.
The rebate from any fund is based on their business models and the level of insurance you have purchased. Cover and rebates differ between health funds, so ensure you select a product that best suits your needs. Our dental fees reflect our practice costs.The difference between the rebate and the dental fees is known as ‘the gap’, or co-payment. This is payable by you.
