On 31 August 2016, the Government introduced legislation to close the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) from 1 January 2017 and establish the Child and Adult Public Dental Scheme.
The closure of this program is subject to the passage of legislation. Once the legislation has been agreed to by Parliament, confirmation of the program’s closure will be made available here.
Eligible children will need to receive dental treatment before 1 January 2017 if they wish to access benefits under the CDBS before its intended closure. To find out if you have unclaimed benefits, call us today on 5540 7422.
