Fees & Payments

Arthur Street Dental > About Us > Fees & Payments

How much your treatment at Arthur Street Dental Surgery will cost, depends on what you’re having done and how complex the treatment is.

When you first visit our Coffs Harbour dental clinic, we will develop an individual dental treatment plan for you and will discuss the costs of any proposed treatments with you.

Payment is required at each appointment, with the following payment options available:

  • Cash
  • Credit card
  • EFTPOS facilities
  • HICAPS for direct billing of your health insurer

You should always find out what funding options may be available to you. Here are some examples of what you may be eligible for:

Private Health Insurance & HICAPS

To avoid the hassle of claiming with your health fund, you can make an instant claim by using our HICAPS facility. Simply swipe your membership card of your health insurance on the day of your treatment and you only need to pay for the balance, or ‘gap’. HICAPS supports all major Australian health funds.

Medicare: Teen Dental Plan

Medicare may cover the costs of dental treatments for chronically ill patients under their Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan. Contact Medicare on 132 011 for more information.

Medicare: Enhanced Primary Care (EPC)

If the costs of your dental treatments put a strain on your budget, you can choose a payment plan that makes it possible to complete your necessary treatment first and pay the fees in a flexible payment arrangement. A MediPlan account offers you a reliable finance solution. Ask our receptionists for more information about this credit facility.

DVA Gold and White Cards

If you hold a Department of Veterans Affairs Gold or White Card, you are entitled to dental treatments in accordance with the schedules published by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Arthur Street Dental Surgery in Coffs Harbour welcomes Veterans and their families to our friendly practice.
