Frequently asked questions

To talk to us about an Accident and Health claim, you can:

We are open Monday to Friday, 8am-5pm (AEST).

A waiting period is the amount of time that must pass from disablement to work from an injury or illness, before the claim can take effect.

For weekly benefits or loss of income claims, a minimum waiting period applies. Usually, it’s 1-2 weeks but it can vary depending on your cover.

Your claims officer will let you know if any waiting period applies to your claim.

An excess is the amount you agree to pay towards a claim. For Corporate Travel, Expatriate and Inpatriate claims there’s usually an excess to pay.

Your claims officer will let you know if any excess applies to your claim. More than one excess may apply in some circumstances. We’ll tell you if there are any excesses to pay and the cost. You can also talk to us if you’re in financial hardship

You need a valid medical certificate for us to be able to pay you weekly benefits. The maximum period we may pay you for can vary from 52 weeks to 104 weeks or as certified by your treating doctor.

If you’re only claiming non-Medicare medical expenses, we’ll complete your claim 12 months from the date of injury.
