Emergency Temporary Treatment
If you are in the UK
We may pay Benefits for emergency callout and Emergency Temporary Treatment costs when you are away from home and/or otherwise more than 15 miles from your dental practice and you could not reasonably access your dentist’s own emergency arrangements. In respect of emergency callout costs (to open surgery) in the UK, you may request payment towards callout fees.
Cover is provided should you be unfortunate enough to suffer a dental trauma, for example, as a result of a road traffic accident or an accident at home or at work. The insurers will settle the claim up to the policy limits and you will need to pay any relevant excess and shortfalls.
Benefit is provided should you have to stay in hospital as a result of dental trauma.
Permanent Facial Disfigurement
Benefit is provided should you be scarred on the neck or face as a result of the accident that has also caused dental trauma, where scarring is still visible after 12 months of occurrence.
A payment will be paid upon diagnosis of oral cancer.
Premiums paid for up to one year.
A leaflet giving details of the insurance cover, limits, excesses and exclusions is available at the practice.
The Scheme is a wholly discretionary scheme, not an insured scheme. It is funded by your Dental Plan Administrator to pay Benefits at the sole and absolute discretion of the Scheme Manager.
The Scheme is operated by Worldwide Assistance Ltd. Its purpose is to assist Dental Plan patients who suffer a Dental Trauma and/or dental emergency or who are diagnosed with Oral Cancer. The Scheme makes payments to fund treatment at the sole and absolute discretion of the Scheme Manager.
The Fund receives payments from Dental Plan Administrators in the Wesleyan Group. The Fund is applied solely to assisting Dental Plan patients, with the only other costs charged to the Fund relating to administration of requests for assistance made and the management of the Fund’s resources.
What is a wholly discretionary scheme and how is discretion applied?
Dental Plan patients are eligible to request assistance from the Scheme in the event of a Dental Trauma and/or dental emergency or diagnosis of Oral Cancer. The Scheme responds to such requests on a wholly discretionary basis. This means that, whilst the Scheme aims to provide Benefits in most cases, the Scheme has no obligation to provide any Benefit unless the Scheme Manager first decides (in its sole and absolute discretion) that the Scheme should provide a Benefit.
