Most Health Funds have an option for covering Major Dental and Orthodontic items. There is usually a one-year waiting period from the time of joining a Health Fund before you are able to receive any Orthodontic benefits. If you are thinking of joining a Health Fund or upgrading your cover solely because you have become aware that you or a family member needs orthodontic treatment in the future, carefully check with the Health Fund that the rebates you will receive from the Health Fund at the time of the treatment will be worth the extra premiums.
Before starting treatment, we will provide you with information about the specific treatment item numbers, treatment description and fees that apply to your specific treatment plan. With this information, you will be able to find out from your Health Fund what benefits you are entitled to receive, before any treatment is started.
