Flexible cover that helps protect your clients’ people at work and home, and everywhere in between
Our flexible product suite aims to reduce the impact of accidents or sickness, whilst helping people get their lives back on track. We have solutions for the self-employed, businesses, sports clubs, government organisations and voluntary workers.
Benefits can address lost earnings, non-Medicare fees and rehabilitation costs, plus provide lump sums for death and serious injuries. Many extra benefits can also be included and we can even tailor the cover to care for employees’ families.
Our policies can complement existing workers compensation schemes because those salary benefits vary across states.
Whatever your client’s industry, our dedicated team will help you tailor the right solution to match their needs and budget.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, please contact your QBE Accident and Health underwriter with the additional information.
Yes, we love seeing what our clients do.
Workers Compensation: Our products can provide a top up payment to workers compensation payments, depending on the policy. In most workers compensation schemes, only a percentage of the injured workers lost wage is covered. Our policy can provide a gap payment to cover the shortfall in the injured workers lost wage.
CTP: The Accident and Health product suite can provide the injured person with weekly payments to cover their lost wage if they are unable to work due to a motor vehicle accident. This depends on the state based CTP scheme as some CTP schemes do provide a weekly benefit to cover any loss of wages (e.g. NSW, VIC).
