What is the difference between OPTION 1 and OPTION 2 

Option 1

Non-Medicare Medical Expenses This covers insured persons for non-medicare medical expenses. The policy is for reimbursement only. That is, the member must pay the account and then claim reimbursement from this insurance cover.

  • Private Hospital Bed
    • Dental and Theatre Fees
    • Ambulance
    • Chiropractic
    • Osteopathy
    • Physiotherapy
    • Orthotics, splints, prosthesis

Due to the National Health Act, no coverage can be provided for medical expenses which are claimable through Medicare including the Medicare Gap.

The Benefits: Reimbursement up to 80% of non- Medicare medical costs, up to $3,000 per injury.

Excess: $200 excess applies to each injury, nil if privately insured.

Conditions: 

  1. If a member belongs to a private health fund, they must claim from that fund first.
    2. Non Medicare Medical costs are only reimbursed by this policy if incurred 52 weeks from the date of injury.
    3. All medical treatment must be certified necessary by a registered medical practitioner.

Option 2

All of the above including Loss of Income

This benefit provides cover for 75% of earnings lost up to a maximum of $250 per week, whichever is the lesser.

The excluded period of claim is 14 days. The maximum benefit period is 52 weeks. The amount of any weekly benefit payable is reduced by the amount of any periodic compensation benefits payable under any other insurance policy or employer or any other source so that the total amount of any such benefits and the weekly benefits payable do not exceed the policy limit.
