Step-by-Step Guide: Applying for a Dental Voucher (OHFFSS) in the Dentist Camden

Do you need dental care but are worried about the cost? Don’t stress—the Oral Health Fee For Service Scheme (OHFFSS) might be just what you need! It’s a program designed to help folks like you get the dental treatment you need from the best Dentist Camden without breaking the bank. 

Scroll down your fingers and learn how to get your hands on one of these handy vouchers.

OHFFSS: Making Dental Care Affordable for Everyone

OHFFSS is a government-sponsored programme that helps people access affordable dental treatment. It is available for anyone who would find it difficult to get into normal dentist offices, particularly in an emergency.

This programme aims to ensure that everyone can receive quality dental treatment without breaking the bank. By making dental treatments more affordable, OHFFSS makes it easy for everybody to maintain good oral hygiene.

OHFFSS Voucher Details

Three types of vouchers may be issued depending on a patient’s dental needs. The maximum amounts payable for these authorised vouchers are:

  • Urgent Care Voucher: $450.00 (or as printed on the voucher)
  • General Care Voucher: $1000.00 (or as printed on the voucher)
  • Denture Care Voucher: $1750.00 (or as printed on the voucher)

Important Note:

Local health districts (LHDs) and specialty health networks may:

  • Raise or lower voucher limits in line with local policy. This means the amount you receive on your voucher may differ depending on your location.
  • Pre-authorise and fund other dental services (ADA items) not listed in this schedule if they are applicable to your specific situation or treatment plan.

Always refer to the information printed on your voucher for the exact coverage details.

Who is Eligible for OHFFSS?

OHFFSS vouchers are for emergency or unaffordable treatments through the Priority Oral Health Programme or authorised channels. These coupons can be used for dental emergencies, routine dental care, or custom dentures.

To be eligible for dental care through OHFFSS, adults must reside within:

  •  the LHD boundary, 
  • be 18 years or older, 
  • possess a valid Medicare card and
