Here at Nickol Bay Dental Clinic, we are pleased to offer the convenience of HICAPs to enable you to claim your private health fund rebate immediately. If you have relevant cover for the treatment you have received, we can process claims for all Australian health insurance funds. In some cases, there will also be a gap payment after claiming that will need to be paid by you, either by EFTPOS, credit card or cash.
We often get asked whether we are a ‘Preferred Provider’ for a specific health fund, which we are proud to answer that we are not. The “preferred practitioners” are not actually preferred because of dental ability but because they meet the fee criteria set by the health funds and have agreed to be contractually bound to the health fund. NBDC has provided quality dental care at reasonable prices to the Karratha community as a locally owned and operated small business for 25 years. Rather than become a contractor to a large insurance corporation, with your support we hope to continue this provision of individualised and impartial dental care.
