The Benefits of Choosing a Medibank Dentist
Having private health insurance can have a number of benefits in relation to dental care and, like any type of insurance, it’s designed to help cover the cost of certain dental treatments. Choosing the right extras with your health insurance policy can mean attractive rebates, particularly when you choose an approved dentist.
If you’re a Medibank customer, we’ll be looking at some of the benefits of choosing a Medibank preferred dentist.
100% back on annual check-ups
One of the most important reasons why you should always choose a Medibank preferred dentist if you’re a Medibank member is that you’ll receive an 100% rebate on your yearly dental check-up. This offer applies no matter how much you’ve claimed back on other treatments so you don’t need to worry about being ineligible. Given the expense that can come of some dental treatments, this offer means you can keep on top of your dental health without having to worry about the cost.
This offer doesn’t include x-rays and will depend on the extras cover that you have with Medibank.
Rebates on a number of treatments
Although the rebates you receive will depend on the extras cover you have in place, many Medibank members can expect up to 70% back on a number of general dental services, including:
- Preventative treatment
- Scale and clean
- Surgery to remove wisdom teeth
If you also have major dental services covered through your policy, Medibank can also provide rebates for root canal, periodontics, crowns, dentures, bridges and veneers.
Your dental health is important so if you’re not sure what dental extras you have included in your policy, speak to Medibank directly.
Only pay the gap
With a Medibank approved dentist, you can expect your rebates to be quick and hassle free. Rather than paying full price up front and having to arrange the rebate yourself, you’ll be able to claim your rebate immediately following your dental treatment. This means that you’re not out of pocket and you only pay your gap.
If you’re wondering how much you can expect to pay for certain treatments and you’re a Medibank customer, contact your preferred dentist who will be able to give you an accurate quote. For any questions around your policy, in particular your current extras, contact Medibank directly.
