Department of Veteran Affairs
At Brisbane Dental and Denture Clinic our doors are open for patients that are eligible under the (DVA) Department of Veterans Affairs scheme. All DVA health card holders are entitled to FREE dental and oral health services. We send all you’re billings to DVA and they cover the entire cost.
Patient that hold the DVA Gold Card are eligible for most dental services at no expense to themselves. DVA will fund all dental services, provided under DVA arrangements, necessary to meet a clinical need for Gold Card holders. For White Card holders, dental treatment can only be provided in relation to your accepted disabilities.
Is there an annual monetary limit to dental services?
Yes. An annual monetary limit applies to most DVA beneficiaries for all items listed as Schedule C items in the fee schedule for dentists and dental specialists.
The annual monetary limit from 1 January 2015 to 30 June 2018 is $2,488. The limit is not cumulative, so any part of the limit not expended in a calendar year cannot be used in subsequent years.
