HCF seeks authorisation for a period of ten years to allow it to open its own dental clinics in locations that may overlap with dentists who participate in HCF's More For Teeth program. Under the More For Teeth program, HCF specifies the maximum fees for a number of dental services to be charged by participating dentists.
On 5 March 2018 the ACCC issued a draft determination proposing to grant authorisation for 10 years. The ACCC now seeks submissions from interested parties in response to its draft determination, prior to making its final decision.
