Child Dental Benefit Schedule
Child Dental Benefits Schedule $1000 dental treatment bulk billed for eligible kids The benefit that many do not know
Dental health is not always within reach. Dental treatment can be mostly out of the family budget. However, dental care is of the utmost importance, especially in children. But what can be done when the expense to be done exceeds our capabilities?
Fortunately, this problem has a solution that more and more users are making use of. This is the Diagnosis Associated Payment benefit, better known as PAD.
What is the CDBS?
The CDBS (Child Dental Benefits Schedule), is a form of payment that allows the contributor or beneficiary of the Buderim Dental clinic to know precisely how much they will have to pay for those surgical interventions or procedures that are registered in the health facilities, whether private or public, that have an agreement with Buderim Dental clinic.
In the case of dental PAD for children from 12 years, Buderim Dental clinic rewards 40% of the total value of the procedure. This is very beneficial, considering that at that age, one treatment involves several dental pieces that are quite expensive.
What does the dental CDBS cover, and who can use it?
Eligible community members of Buderim Dental clinic can use the dental CDBS under the age group of 2-17 years.
With this benefit, you can pay a full treatment or part of it, provided that this treatment is within the following six benefits.
- Obturation, diagnosis, and treatment for a dental piece
- Sealing, complementary therapy, more than one and up to 4 dental pieces
- Sealing, additional treatment, more than four ,
- Endodontic treatment (duct treatment) Incisive,
- Pre Molar Endodontics Treatment,
- Molar Endodontics Treatment
Each of these has a different price and is assigned a specific code that will let you know the final value and buy it with a corresponding amount.
What steps should I follow to use this benefit?
First, you must choose a Buderim dentist or Buderim Dental clinic with dental care that has the PAD agreement. Maiposaludes one of them.
At the chosen centre, time is reserved for the first dental care. There, a visual, oral evaluation will be carried out, and if the presence of at least one caries is confirmed, the dentist will indicate the purchase of the Dental Filling PAD
The patient will then be asked for a “Bite Wing” radiograph, which is meant to see if there are cavities and where they are located. In case there are cavities in more than one piece, and up to 4, the Buderim dentist will additionally request to buy the Dental PAD continuation of the treatment, indicating the corresponding code for the purchase.
For root canal treatment, the Buderim dentist will evaluate oral health, requesting an x-ray to confirm which piece is the one that requires treatment. If they are incisors, canines, and/or premolars, the treatment can be performed by a Buderim dentist, requesting to buy the Endodontics PAD with the corresponding code according to the affected part.
However, if a molar endodontic treatment is required, only a Buderim dentist with a specialty in endodontics can perform the treatment, requesting to buy the Dental PAD with a specific code different from the others.
Many times, due to ignorance, parents do not know the benefits that their children can access. It is extremely important to ensure proper dental care for them, especially at this age where they gradually go to adulthood.
