Our main responsibility is to provide you with the most appropriate dental treatment.
At times, this could mean we refer you to a specialist.
Depending on your needs, your dentist may refer you to a specialist for further treatment or ongoing care. We will do our best to accommodate your needs to ensure we are providing the best possible service to our members.
Your health fund benefit for specialist treatment*
If you are referred to an external specialist, please speak with Health Partners Member Services before your treatment, to check your benefit and out-of-pocket expenses. Depending on the actual treatment, it may be classed as General, Endodontic or Major Dental.
*Please note that Bronze Extras only covers specialist treatment classed as General Dental and Endodontic. Specialist treatment classed as Major Dental is not covered.
We recommend that members always discuss the cost of treatment with their specialist before proceeding.
