Self employed persons must complete employment details onto a Statutory Declaration, and supply any other requested information relevant to the claim. If you register as a Student you are not entitled to claim Loss of Income Benefits.
  • The physician’s statement is to be completed by your physician only (chiropractors and physiotherapists are not permitted to complete this form). All individuals must consult a doctor immediately after injury, to legitimise the claim. N.B. The policy only responds to paid receipts (no exceptions).
  • Have the club’s VP, registrar or secretary complete the club’s section of the form and return the claim form and physician’s statement, together with any NON-MEDICARE RECEIPTS to the address on the form within 90 days. You do not need to have all your receipts to submit the form or to have stopped receiving treatment.
  • On-going Loss of Income Benefits require new medical certificates every 14 days.

Note: If all receipts are not available within the 90 day period, please send the receipts in after the claim has been lodged. If you are in a private health fund, please present any accounts to your fund firstly and forward the rebate in for assessing. Following this procedure will ensure the maximum benefit and prompt response.
