It looked like it wouldn’t last, but the Medicare Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Dental Scheme appears likely to continue into the foreseeable future.
Under the scheme, you are able to claim up to $4,250 in Medicare Benefits over two consecutive calendar years. The two-calendar year period is counted from the calendar year of your first dental service.
This means that anyone who began their dental services in 2008 will now be able to renew their Care Plan with their GP and access a new round of funding. New clients can enrol with their GP at any time.
