How much will I get back from my health fund for the treatment?
This is dependent on which health fund you are with and also the level of cover you are on. At the end of your appointment, your dentist will provide you with a treatment plan, which will include a list of item numbers. An item number is a 3-digit code that you will need to quote to your health fund. Following this, your fund will be able to tell you exactly how much you are covered for.
What is the difference between General and Major Dental treatment?
Most health funds classify dental treatment into two categories: General Dental and Major Dental.
General Dental treatment can include:
Diagnostic and preventive services (examinations, X-rays, scale and clean)
Major Dental treatment can include:
Crowns and bridgework
Root canal treatment
Each year there is a maximum benefit you can claim in each of these categories.
