Health Insurance Claims processed "On The Spot"

EFTPOS, Credit cards and HICAPS accepted

Care For Smiles can process private health insurance funds claims on-the-spot using HICAPS.

HICAPS is a free service for health insurance fund members. Once your claim is authorised by your health fund, you only pay the difference between the Care For Smiles fee and the amount claimed from your health fund (the gap amount).

The gap amount can be paid by cash, EFTPOS, American Express, Mastercard or Visa. Care For Smiles does not charge a fee for credit card use.

Remember to bring your current health fund membership card to your dental appointment to allow your claim to be processed on-the-spot.

The best way to lower the cost of dental care is to prevent dental decay and gum disease through maintaining good oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing.

Regular check-ups and early intervention are a relatively inexpensive way to avoid potentially higher costs in the future. You can also take advantage of Care For Smiles' Special Offers.

Care For Smiles is a Preferred Provider for the HCF More For Teeth program and the CBHS Choice Network program. HCF and CBHS Health Fund members are fully covered for annual check-ups, cleans, x-rays, mouthguards and more (subject to annual limits).
