Does 1300SMILES Work With My Health Fund Provider?

1300SMILES works with most private health fund providers as we want to make claims as simple and as straightforward as we can for you. Our preferred partners include medibank, Bupa, TUH and HCF, although this can vary according to your practice location. Often we can organise claims on the same days as your treatments using our link to HICAPS (Health Industry Claims and Payments Service). Although we can help you with your health fund claims, the contract between you and your health fund is separate from the contract you have with our dental practice.

How Is My Health Fund Rebate Calculated?

Most health fund providers will have fixed rebates for particular services, regardless of the fees charged by your dentist. The level of rebate received also depends on your type of cover, and the premium paid. There are also other factors involved such as annual limits on the total amount that may be claimed and waiting periods before a plan is activated. Some common treatments will not have any rebates.

We are here to help you so contact us by phone or with Live Chat if you have more questions.
