Your dental plan and Supplementary Insurance
Your dental plan includes mandatory supplementary dental injury and emergency insurance providing peace of mind in the event of a dental injury or emergency.
As a member of a dental plan, you will have the peace of mind that your preventive dental care is provided by your dentist in return for convenient monthly payments. The monthly amount that you pay depends on the type of plan.
DPAS Limited (‘DPAS’) manages and administers your dental plan payments using its Direct Debit Originator status. DPAS also arranges this Supplementary Insurance Policy, which forms an integral part of the dental plan and provides further cover in the event of dental injuries and dental emergencies. DPAS charges you a monthly fee for managing and administering your dental plan, which includes the premium payable to the insurers, ACE European Group Limited, for this insurance. DPAS’s charges are deducted from your monthly payment and the balance is paid to your dentist for the dental care services that he/she provides.
There are two levels of Supplementary Insurance cover, level A and level B. It is the decision of your dental practice to decide the level of cover it wishes to make available to dental plan patients, reflecting up-to-date treatment charges to ensure that sufficient funds are available to the patient in the event of an accident or emergency.
For full details of the benefits, limitations and exclusions of Supplementary Insurance please refer to the Supplementary Insurance Policy.
ACE and Chubb are now one
ACE Limited has recently acquired Chubb Corporation, creating a new global insurance leader. The acquisition and change of name from ACE Group to Chubb was a commercial business decision for the two organisations and their shareholders.
