About the scheme
The Oral Health Fee For Service Scheme (OHFFSS) allows public dental services in NSW to outsource treatment to private dental practitioners.
When a patient requests dental treatment they are prioritised for care and may receive treatment at a public dental clinic, or if appropriate, be given the option to receive the treatment from a private provider (using an OHFFSS voucher).
Note that the decision to provide treatment within a public dental clinic or by issuing a voucher lies with the public dental service, and is assessed on a case-to-case basis.
Eligible NSW residents may receive dental treatment either directly through the public dental service or be given an Oral Health Fee for Service Scheme (OHFFSS) voucher to receive treatment from a dental practitioner registered with the public dental service.
How do you get a voucher?
Eligible people must:
- be a NSW resident, have a valid Medicare card and
