SuperCare Finance at Smile Central

empty dental chairEmergencies happen and they can wreak havoc on our finances. When you face extensive dental repairs or oral surgery, the cost of such services can add additional stress to the situation and cause patients to wait in pain or defer necessary procedures until they can afford the services.

For patients in Australia, however, there is hope. SuperCare, started in 2012, allows early release of your superannuation funds for eligible procedures. Providing coverage for everything from orthodontics, dental implants and root canals to other essential treatments, SuperCare improves the health and wellbeing of patients by helping alleviate their financial stress when dental interventions are required.

What Services May Be Covered?

Though each patient’s situation will be different, those services most commonly covered under the SuperCare umbrella include:

  • Dental Surgery
  • Oral Surgery
  • Dental Crowns and Bridges
  • Braces and Orthodontics
  • Implants and Dentures
  • Root Canals
  • General Dentistry
Once your application is submitted, you will have a response in about ten days, and if approved, funding is released five to seven days later. SuperCare puts patients’ health and wellbeing at the forefront of every decision they make and understands that an efficient application process increases the likelihood that you’re receiving necessary treatment as soon as possible.

Who Is Eligible for SuperCare?

Though many Australians may not be aware they can apply for early release of their Super, this payment option is a great fit for a family who:

  • Does not have relevant or sufficient private health insurance
  • Does not have access to sufficient, available funds
  • Has at least one member with Superannuation funds

The eligibility of a family member is determined within the definitions provided by the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993. SuperCare’s dedicated and caring consultants provide assistance for patients through the two-step application process so you understand your eligibility, financial obligation and the treatments covered under this program.
