Under the CDBS, for each child up to $1,000 can be claimed over 2 consecutive calendar years. The 2 year period begins from your child’s first eligible dental service, lasting for a full calendar year.
If the full $1000 is not used in the first year, this then rolls over to the next year as long as your child is still eligible.
If the full 2 years has passed and the $1000 amount has not been used, it cannot be rolled over.
You can however start a new 2 calendar year period if you remain eligible, meaning you’ll receive another $1,000 in benefits to claim over the next 2 years. Above we have mentioned what treatments are covered in this scheme. Some of the treatments are not covered which includes orthodontic treatment (braces), Cosmetic dentistry and Dental services provided in hospital.
