BULK BILL dentist Port Macquarie
Phone the Dept of Health on 132011 or contact us by PHONE on 65836111 to find out if your child is eligible for the $1052 Bulk Bill Child Dental Benefit Scheme. If your child is not eligible we offer competitive rates and work with all Dental Benefit Health Funds to minimise your out-of-pocket expenses.
Star Dental welcomes all children to a warm and caring environment providing outstanding facilities and services specifically designed to cater to children. There are NO out-of-pocket expenses or gap payments for Bulk Bill services under the Child Dental Benefit Scheme.
PLEASE NOTE – There is no longer any Bulk Billing for Adult Dental Services since the Rudd / Gillard Labor Party voted to end the Medicare Adult Dental Scheme.
We still Bulk Bill all eligible patients but unfortunately, this does not include anyone over 18 years of age. This is the same for all private dentists in Australia
