Why Dental Cover? We have agreements with most local dentists to limit your out-of-pocket expenses. Our Gap Free preventative Dental pays 100% of the fee when you see a Super Dental provider and up to the same maximum benefit amount for non agreement dentists.

 

Effective 1 April 2017

Our mid-range Dental cover. Can be taken on its own or in combination with the Basic Ancillary or Ancillary Plus. Includes Gap Free Preventative Dental.

Mildura Health Fund has set benefits for individual dental services. Some services have claiming limitations as per the Australian Dental Association schedule. These limitations can vary depending on service provided and can mean that in some cases benefits are not payable. If you are planning extensive treatment, ask your dentist for the item numbers and costs, and then contact us for a quote. The maximum benefit allowed for any service listed in the Mildura Health Fund Dental Benefit Schedule is the benefit prescribed. Benefits are only paid for services rendered by a registered dentist in private practice. Benefits are not payable in respect of any cosmetic dental treatment.
No Fund benefit will be payable for dental treatment that is subject to reimbursement by Medicare.
