Medicare is able to provide dental assistance for approved patients referred to Lifeline Dental through the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plans. Please be aware that it remains the Government's intention to phase out the Enhanced Primary Care Medicare dental plan in order to make funding available for its new dental programs. Patients receiving services under the EPC scheme will be advised as soon as negotiations are complete. Medicare currently provides coverage of dental treatment for chronically ill patients under the care of GPs, Specialists and Dentists.

We realise that unforeseen dental needs may put a strain on your financial budget, so we have introduced a range of payment plans which will enable you to complete the dental treatment you desire and need.
Mac Credit are available for those who wish to arrange flexible payment options. An account through Mac Credit offers reliable finance solutions without any surprises. In addition, your private health insurer may offer a partial refund on the dental treatment options.
As combined family members or as an individual, you may be entitled to a 20% rebate on the total of your medical, dental, optical and holistic medicine expenses exceeding the $1500.00 threshold per financial year. That is, the portion of the out of pocket expenses that you incur after receiving your private health fund insurance rebates (and Medicare rebates where applicable).
For further information seek advice from an accountant if in doubt as to how the net medical expense rebate applies to you.
