Dental Payment Plans Sydney
We are aware that sometimes patients need help with payment of their dental treatments, and here at Design Dental we offer payment plans to suit your needs so we offer a variety of options to pay for treatment. Payment is required at the time of treatment unless prior arrangements have been made. For ‘pay as you go’ option we offer cash, cheque, credit card, EFTPOS and HiCaps facilities. Direct deposits can also be made.
We welcome members of all private heath funds for treatment. With our HICAPS terminal linked to over 46 private health funds, you can claim your benefits instantly with a swipe of your health fund card. For health funds participating in the HICAPS electronic claims system, we can process your rebate on the spot and only the “gap” payment is required at time of treatment. We are also a health fund provider for Medibank, HCF and CBHS. If you are a member of one of the above mentioned health funds, you will be able to receive quality treatment with a discounted fee.
All Gold and White Veterans’ Affairs card holders are entitled to subsided dental treatment.We bulk bill DVA card holders for most dental treatments . We claim directly from DVA so you don’t have to pay upfront.
