Give Your Child the Gift of Healthy Oral Health Care With the CDBS
The CDBS is a Medicare program that provides children aged 0 to 17 years with access to basic dental services with a benefit cap of $1,052 (cap amount as of 1 January 2023) over two consecutive calendar years.
This scheme covers various necessary services, such as exams, x-rays, cleanings, fissure sealants, fillings, extractions, and root canals. Unfortunately, the CDBS does not cover cosmetic services, orthodontic treatments, or hospital dental care.
If your child is eligible for Medicare, they are most likely eligible for the CDBS. The good thing about CDBS is that if your child is eligible, Medicare will send you a notice.
