Health Funds / Private Health Insurance
When you sign up with a health insurance provider to cover you for dental fees, you should be aware that:
Each health fund determines what level of rebates it will pay based on individual level of cover.
The rebates payable on dental fees are likely to range between 50% to 100%.

As a service to our patients, and as part of our continued commitment to excellent yet affordable dental care, WPD has entered into a Contract / arrangement with Private Health Insurance companies as listed below. WPD has undertaken to charge members of the funds an agreed schedule of fees for each procedure. As a result, members of health funds depending on their individual level of cover pay a smaller 'gap payment' towards treatment at Woodvale Park Dental.
Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly provide you with a pre-treatment estimate for your insurance company so that you will get to know from your Insurance Company what your benefits will be prior to the treatment appointment.
Please note that whilst WPD will charge the scheduled fees stipulated by the above Health Funds, the amount of rebate you are entitled to will depend on the level of cover that you have. You are encouraged to make inquiries with your health fund with regard to the rebate that you are entitled to for specific treatments which are identified by item numbers.
You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available.
