What does being a preferred provider mean?

It means that Derrimut Dental has entered into a Contract with the above private health insurance companies in which Derrimut Dental has undertaken to charge members of the funds an agreed schedule of fees for each procedure. These fees are lower than what one would pay to Dentists who are not preferred providers. As a result of the subsidized fees for members of the health funds, and depending on your level of cover you have, you are more likely to pay a smaller ‘gap’ payment towards your treatment at Derrimut Dental.


Please note that whilst Derrimut Dental 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 (identified by item numbers) at Derrimut Dental surgeries.
