While Currambine Dental offers the highest standard of dental services, we also have an unwavering commitment to making sure that the dental care we provide is available and accessible to those who need it. That is why we work with numerous health funds to ensure that when the time comes, you don't forego the treatment you need to have fully functional and healthy teeth.

Get the care you need, when you need it
Health care in Australia is covered by the government, under Medicare, as well as a number of private health funds. These private health fund providers complement Medicare by paying for the costs of medical services that are beyond the scope of Medicare, for example, dental health cover. This makes getting the care you need affordable and accessible and we make claiming easier with HICAPS claiming available for most major health funds. The private health funds that Currambine Dental works with include:
- SUNCORP HEALTH
- QUANTAS ASSURE
Choosing your health fund
The choice of which health fund to go with is equally as important as deciding to have dental health insurance
itself. It is a commitment that warrants research and is certainly worth some thought. This careful consideration will help ensure you find dental health cover that is a perfect fit for you, your family and your budget.
When selecting your preferred private dental insurance provider make sure you understand what is covered and what your entitlements will be under the policy. Factors that you need to consider before settling on which cover is best for you include:
- The type of cover you require
- Applicable waiting periods
- Annual limits
- Special promotions
- Your current relationship status
- Your budget
The rebate amount you receive on each item will be determined by the qualified assessors that work with each health fund. In most cases, how much you pay as premiums will determine the level of rebate you receive.
The agreement or contract you share with your selected dental health cover provider exists solely between you and them. While we maintain good relationships with these private health funds, it is important to remember that the amounts payable by either you or your dental care provider will be determined by a qualified assessor.
