This funding provided by the Government will provide access to benefits for basic dental services to around 3.4 million eligible children aged 2-17 years. It will replace the existing Medicare Teen Dental Plan (MTDP).

 

The total benefit entitlement will be capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS will have a means test,

 

Eligible families will be notified in early 2014, however, it has been confirmed that families that receive Family Tax Benefit Part A will receive the benefits of the schedule.
