Insurance FAQ's

What does the ADAQ QBE insurance policy cover?
The insurance policies we sell are comprehensive. When you take out insurance through us, you are covered for the total scope of dentistry.

Unlike other insurance providers, QBE insurance does not add loading to your policy if you undertake certain procedures such as implants, orthodontics or extraction of molars. You may only need to take out an extension cover through us, if you undertake botox treatment solely for cosmetic improvement.

I practice general dentistry and have been looking at adding an area of practice that wasn't disclosed in my application for insurance. What do I need to do to ensure I'm covered for this new activity?
Your QBE ADAQ Members Professional indemnity policy currently provides a broad definition of Your Profession with the Product Disclosure Statement. As a general dentist who is appropriately licenced and trained, you can undertake any activities included without referral. Contact the ADAQ Membership team ([email protected]) to discuss any queries you may have. 

I'm thinking of retiring or otherwise ceasing practice permanently. What is the process should I make that decision?

Unlimited run-off cover is available to qualifying members upon application to ADAQ. For qualifying members applying for this cover within 90 days of ceasing practice, Your policy will be endorsed to provide ongoing indemnity for Your activities performed up until the date You ceased practice. It is important to notify Us of the cessation of Your practice. If you don't advise Us Your policy will not be endorsed to provide run-off cover which may expose you to liability arising from claims, you first learn about beyond the date you ceased practice. 

Do I Qualify for the QBE part-time / restricted Professional Indemnity Policy?
In order to qualify for the part-time/restricted category, you are required to limit your working hours to 20 hours or less each week. Unfortunately, you cannot average your hours across 2 or more weeks to qualify for this category.  For example, if you work 10 hours one week and 25 hours the following week, then you do not qualify for the part-time category and the QBE full-time category is more appropriate for you. 

Do I need to notify ADAQ that I am placing implants as part of my practice? I want to be sure that I am covered.
Yes. Provided you notify ADAQ that you are placing implants as part of your practice and pay the loading, you will be appropriately covered. Anyone who places implants as part of their practice needs to notify ADAQ, except registered specialist periodontists.
Restorative procedures on implants do not require notification and do not attract an additional loading.

Do I need to notify ADAQ that I am placing orthodontics as part of my practice? I want to be sure that I am covered.
Yes. Provided you notify ADAQ that you are performing fixed orthodontic treatment as part of your practice and pay the additional loading, you will be appropriately covered. Anyone who performs fixed orthodontic treatment as part of their practice needs to notify, except registered specialist orthodontists.

Removable appliances such as fixed retainers or clear aligners do not require notification
