Dental health insurance in Australia
When paying for dental treatment in Australia, you can use your private health insurance to cover some of the costs. Insurance coverage varies widely depending on your chosen policy, but generally, common preventative treatments like oral examinations, cleaning and minor fillings will be eligible for an insurance claim. More complex procedures may require an extras policy.
Dentistry in Canterbury accepts all major Australian health insurance funds for eligible treatments and uses HICAPS to process on-the-spot claims so that you can recoup any expenses as quickly as possible.
