Thinking of dental implants? Get started before Dec 31 & you could save thousands!


Get the most out of your 2017 health insurance before it’s too late.

You could get double the rebate for your implant procedure by combining two calendar years.

  1. Start now (claiming 2017 benefits)
  2. Finish in the New Year (claiming 2018 benefits)

For example, if you were entitled to an annual $2.5K rebate for implants you could get two implants in December, then two more in January. So you could claim $5K in total rather than $2.5K.



IMPORTANT: The rebate  suggested in this article is a guide and hypothetical example only. Dentistry Plus is not inferring that everyone will get $2.5K rebate per year, as the rate depends on your level of cover and health fund. Please check with your private health fund for an accurate account of your entitlements.

Surprised? Here’s how it works

For example, if you were requiring dental implants and had major dental cover, you may be entitled to approximately $2500 per calendar year (Important – everyone’s entitlements are different – please talk to your health insurance to clarify your exact level of rebate)


If you had two implants in December, you would receive $2.5K rebate, then the New Year you could have more implants placed, receiving another $2.5K.

Within a couple of months, you could be well on your way to organising your implant-supported denture, receiving $5K in rebate for your implants, rather than just $2.5K.

Wouldn’t it be nice to save an extra $2.5K?

Yep, it would. And, the good news doesn’t stop there. Dental implants are just one item number. Depending on the timing, you may be able to combine calendar years for abutments and possibly more.
