Free dental check-ups with Members First Platinum

Bupa customers with combined hospital and extras cover* can now access 12 common preventative dental services for free, with the launch of Bupa’s new Members First Platinum dental network.

Services include check-ups, mouthguards and bitewing x-rays.

Dr Dwayne Crombie, Managing Director of Bupa Health Insurance, said Members First Platinum clinics are located across the country and will give customers more choice when it comes to their dental care.

“More than 800 dental clinics nationwide have signed up to be a part of Bupa’s Members First Platinum network, which launched on September 1. This new network will provide our customers with more options about which dental clinic they go to and how much they pay for dental check-ups and preventative care,” Dr Crombie said.

“We know the cost of dental care unfortunately prevents many Australians from seeing a dentist. Members First Platinum has been designed to help ensure Bupa customers can have regular check-ups by removing some of the financial burden.

“We’ll continue to pay our existing rebates at all other dentists, but this new program provides additional choice for customers. We know affordability and value for money are what people want from their health insurance and Members First Platinum is one of the ways that we are delivering this,” Dr Crombie said.

Bupa’s Members First Platinum practices are located across the country (including in a number of rural/regional areas).
