Protect your business and its most valuable assets

We understand that people have a life outside of work. That’s why we offer Accident and Health insurance products that can protect them 24/7 – wherever they are.

Our products aim to reduce the impact of accidents or sickness, whilst helping people get their lives back on track. Suitable for the self-employed, businesses, sports clubs, government organisations and voluntary workers, we can also provide bespoke solutions for large employers.

The 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 salary benefits for those schemes vary across states.

For more information please contact your broker.

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).
