There has been plenty of talk about the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (Medicare bulk billing for children) coming to an end in 2017. The truth is, this scheme is still going to continue to run! The Australian Dental Association Australia have released an article all about the scheme and this explains that the scheme will still run, but not without some changes!! The amount of $1000 to spend over the 2 years will be changing to a limit of $700. Patients that have started treatment and are still undergoing treatment, will still be able to use up to the $1000.
