Changes to the Medicare Teen Dental Plan
The Medicare Teen Dental Plan will be replaced with the Child Dental Benefits Schedule from 1 January 2014.
Eligible teens will be able to access the Medicare Teen Dental Plan until 31 December 2013. Benefits will continue to be paid for services provided to eligible teenagers before the date of closure.
A self-paced eLearning program has been developed to support dentists. The 45 minute program ‘Medicare and You—for dentists’ is interactive and easy to use.
