C) Can you choose your own dentist?
- Be careful: You may not be able to choose your own dentist and receive the rebates that have been promised to you.
- Your dentist knows the treatment you have received and knows you.
- Special contractual relationships between a Health Fund and the dentist of their choosing may be beneficial to them but not to you.
- If you
cannot be treated by the dentist of your choice then you need to
carefully consider the terms of your cover and ask why your insurer says
you cannot be seen by your own dentist.
- This restriction by health funds is not in the patient’s dental health interest-think again about the insurer you are choosing if it insists on you seeing their preferred dentist.
