    Default Government's Dental Rebate?

    Is this still a thing? Some coworkers were talking last year saying the dentists were trying to fit as many children in at the end of the year because there was talk the government was going to pull the $1500 family rebate for dental work at the end of 2016. Does anyone know? Ds2 now requires some pretty important dental work...

    Default Government's Dental Rebate?

    The Human services website says there's changes to the CDBS cap as of Jan 17.

    Benefits will be capped at $700 per child over 2 consecutive calendar years for basic dental work. If your child started their 2 year cap period in 2016, they can still continue to access the rest of their $1000 cap until the 31st Dec 2017 (provided the child's eligible for the CDBS in 2017).

    If you don't use the $700 in one year, you can use it in the next, provided you're still eligible for the scheme.

    I think they still send letters out etc if you're eligible, but I'm not entirely sure if the eligibility has changed. I couldn't see it saying any changes for eligibility, but that's not to say there isn't any!

    It's also only for basic dental, not cosmetic or orthodontic.

    Thanks @Mod-Uniquey. Do you have a website link I can have a look at? (I'm mobile ATM) so I can check eligibility? We did get a letter originally but that was before I went back to work...
