If your child is eligible for the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule, as the parent or guardian, you will receive a letter from Medicare - you do not need to apply.
Your child can get CDBS when:
- they are eligible for Medicare
- they are between 2 and 17 years old for at least 1 day that calendar year
- you or they get an eligible payment (such as Family Tax Benefit - Part A, Parenting Payment, ABSTUDY, Disability Support Pension, Youth Allowance etc.) at least once that year.
For more information, visit the CDBS section on Medicare website.
