At The Special Needs Dentistry Practice, all payments are due at the time of the appointment. We do not issue accounts under most circumstances.

Payment methods available are cash, credit card, cheque and EFTPOS. We accept VISA and MasterCard credit cards.

Medicare

Adult dental services do not attract a Medicare benefit. If you are under the age of 18 and are eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule, please let us know.

HICAPS

Our practice locations, except Miranda, have the HICAPS (Health Industry Claims and Payments Service) electronic claiming system. If you are covered by private health insurance, you will be able to claim on the day of your clinic appointment if you bring your membership card with you to the appointment.

Veterans

We are proud to offer our services to Australia’s retired service men and women. Dental services for veterans are generally covered by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs within a yearly monetary limit. Pre-approval may be required in complex cases. Please bring your DVA card to your appointment. For more information, visit the DVA website or call the department on 1300 550 457.
