Australian Government confirms CDBS will be retained

thecdbsissaved-teaserAustralian government has officially confirmed that CDBS will be retained.

Great news for the eligible children!!

The retention of the CDBS, the closure of which was opposed by a broad spectrum of dental practitioners and other health professionals as part of a campaign spearheaded by the ADA, means that its proposed replacement the Child and Adult Public Dental Scheme, will now not proceed.

The continuation of the CDBS comes with some modifications with the maximum benefits available to each eligible child reduced from $1000 to $700; however, any child who commenced treatment during 2016 will have access to the full original cap amount through the current two-year period.
