Service Provided by the GP
Pius X Aboriginal Corporation Health Centre bulk bills all of its Aboriginal clients. The service charges no “gap”. The service makes its clients aware that we bulk bill by a notice at Reception, the Patient Information Sheet and the service’s website.
Pius X Aboriginal Corporation provides dental services which are funded for Aboriginal people by NSW Aboriginal Oral Health Services. However, to sustain this service, fees must be charged. A fee of $20 will be charged to every Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person who attends an appointment at the service.
We don’t charge for the following appointments
Children between 2 and 17 who are eligible for the Children’s Dental Health Benefit
Pregnant women who present with a referral for the GP
People with chronic or complex care needs who present with a Team Care Arrangement Care Plan for the GP
The dentist will discuss cost of treatment with clients. Those clients who have private health insurance will be asked to pay claim on their private health funds. Non-Aboriginal clients will be asked to pay the full cost of treatment. Dental accounts must be paid before further treatment will be provided.
The cost of dentures must be paid by all clients, with 50% deposit paid before dentures will be ordered. The remainder will need to be paid before the dentures are released to the client.
