Your child’s eligibility for CDBS is assessed at the beginning of each calendar year, and your child’s entitlement remains valid for the rest of the following two year period. You should also have received a Medicare letter that confirms your child’s eligibility for the CDBS benefit.

Your claim can be processed on-the-spot at our front desk. Just bring in your Medicare letter, and we will help you complete your claim.
