HICAPS

Beaches Dental Mona Vale is part of HICAPS allowing us to process most health fund claims at the time of your appointment leaving only the gap for payment. We do need your card to swipe it to make the payment so make sure you have it with you at your appointment.

We also provide you with a treatment plan outlining the relevant item numbers for you to be able to check with your health fund prior to your appointment to know exactly what will be covered and what your rebate will be.

Please note – Not all health funds are covered under Hicaps (it does cover all major and most minor health funds though). In the case your health fund is not covered you will need to pay the fee in full and claim back from your health fund.

Veterans Affairs provides extensive cover for Gold and White card holders (full and partial cover) we are happy to except both at Beaches Dental Mona Vale as we appreciate the service given by the men and women of the Australian Armed Forces.
