2019 will bring with it some changes to rebates for our patients, to make pricing for dental procedures more equitable. From 1 January 2019 all existing HBF Member Plus contracts will be cancelled, ending discriminatory rebates for certain procedures.
What does this mean for you? For our practice, your rebates will increase (you’ll get more back from your health insurance provider). For example, Hygiene Codes will be priced higher in the new year, however, our patients will get up to 80% back on their check-ups, scaling and x-rays. This is dependant on if they are under top tier cover.
The good news is that all providers can now offer the same rebate for the same procedure, giving you greater flexibility in visiting the dentist you want to see – hopefully, us!
