CDBS Bulk Billing Dentist Related FAQs

How does bulk billing work in Australia?

Bulk billing is a feature of Australia’s Medicare system where health professionals bill the government directly for a medical service provided to a patient. Instead of the patient paying upfront and then seeking a rebate from Medicare, the health professional claims the rebate directly from the government. When a service is bulk billed, the patient incurs no out-of-pocket expenses.

Are there any hidden charges if I use bulk billing service?

No, one of the main principles of bulk billing is transparency. When a service is bulk billed, the practitioner accepts the Medicare benefit as full payment, and the patient should not have any out-of-pocket expenses. However, not all services may be covered under bulk billing, so it’s crucial to check with dental clinic beforehand.

How can I check if I'm eligible for bulk billing?

Eligibility for bulk billing often depends on the service provider and the specific Medicare criteria. Typically, to be eligible for bulk billing, you must be enrolled in Medicare and meet specific criteria set out by the service provider or program (like the Child Dental Benefits Schedule). If you’re uncertain about your eligibility, it’s best to contact your dental clinic directly or check with Medicare.

Can I use bulk billing for cosmetic dental procedures?

Bulk billing is generally intended for essential health services. Cosmetic dental procedures, which are primarily for aesthetic purposes and not deemed medically necessary, are usually not covered under bulk billing.
