Summary

The bill: specifies actions the minister must take when a dental practitioner who has provided a dental service and claimed a Medicare benefit payment is required to repay the benefit because certain administrative processes have not been undertaken; and requires the minister to table a report in Parliament detailing the actions taken. Also amends the Health Insurance (Dental Services) Determination 2007 to allow for circumstances where a Medicare benefit can be paid where a written quotation was not provided prior to dental treatment.
