Health Funds at Rosalie Dental

Rosalie Dental in Brisbane is dedicated to providing our community with high-quality dental care, but excellent treatment isn’t the only element. We also believe in offering affordable, convenient care that is accessible to families and individuals of all budgets and backgrounds.

One of the ways we help make dental care accessible is through health funds. Accepting all major health funds, we’re here to help you find the most cost-efficient and convenient way to maintain your oral health.
Many patients may not realise that their health fund covers dental work. We suggest checking with your health fund provider to confirm your coverage and what it entails.

What is a health fund?

Generally this refers to a private health insurer who offers various forms of coverage for their members. There is a large variety in different health funds and types. For instance, some only offer membership to individuals who belong to certain groups (such as those who work in the police force or in education).

Another common characteristic in health funds is that many will allow you to tailor your coverage according to what you need. Some of these coverage plans include dental benefits.

What does “no gap” mean?

“No gap” payments are sometimes a benefit that health fund patients enjoy, depending on your provider and level of coverage.

Essentially, no gap coverage means that there’s no “gap” between the expenses for your treatment and what your health fund will cover, meaning you end up with no out-of-pocket expenses. This makes your dental care both more affordable and more convenient, allowing for quicker and more efficient claims.

We are now part of Bupa

If you have the correct type of Extras Cover, your children could be eligible for “no gap” dental, which lasts until they’re 25.

HICAPS

Another way we help health fund members is by offering an in-practice HICAPS machine. HICAPS (Health Industry Claims and Payments Service) is an electronic system that allows you to claim instantly while still in the office.

This way, you can claim on the spot. Bypassing the need to claim manually can save you and your family time and stress, helping to make your experience at Rosalie Dental even smoother.

Which health funds do we accept?

We accept most major health funds. If you do not see your health fund on the below list, feel free to give us a call or contact us online to find out more information.

Looking for additional ways to save money on your dental treatment?

Health fund coverage isn’t the only way to make your care more affordable. There are also several different ways offers at Rosalie Dental, as well as national government schemes.

CDBS (Child Dental Benefits Schedule)

First, the Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a government initiative that helps cover children’s basic dental treatments. This usually includes services like check-ups, x-rays, fillings and extractions. Eligibility is determined by a means test.

If you think your child may be eligible, we recommend updating your details and checking with Medicare. You can also read more about the CDBS by clicking here.

Gem Visa payment plans

Rosalie Dental is also pleased to offer payment plans through Gem Visa. With low minimum payments each month, Gem Visa offers a way to make larger payments more manageable.

We value our patients’ trust. When you refer friends or family to our practice, we see this as one of the highest compliments. To say thank you, we invite referring patients to take advantage of our Patient Referral Reward, which entails a $50 voucher.
