Health Fund Members

 

On-the-spot electronic claiming of heath fund benefits through HICAPS is available Prime Care Dental.

This means you can claim your health fund benefit you may be eligible for at the time of treatment. The health fund benefit amount will be deducted from the overall treatment charge so you only pay the difference. You no longer have to go to your health fund to claim your refund.

Please ensure that you bring your current health fund membership card to every dental appointment.

Using HICAPS, we are also able to provide a “rebate estimate” prior to treatment for some of the participating health funds.
