Please keep in mind
Personal Injury cover is a policy for injuries occurring due to an accident. It is not a sickness or illness policy.
Personal Injury cover can pay for Non-Medicare Medical Expenses. These include physio, chiro, dental, ambulance transport and private hospital accommodation.
Personal Injury cover is not Private Health Insurance or Life Insurance.
It is strongly recommended that all players investigate their personal insurance needs. Players should consider the benefits of:
- Private health Insurance
- Life Insurance
- Loss of Income (particularly for self-employed players)
- Ambulance Subscription
Upgrading cover is optional and is available for teams or individuals. Upgrade options include:
- Increasing Non-Medicare benefits
- Adding Loss of Income cover
Some States and Leagues do this automatically so check with your club what level of benefits you qualify for.
