Trauma insurance cover and claims advice

Trauma insurance is often included as part of a superannuation or life insurance policy, and successful claims typically involve payment of a lump sum if you have been diagnosed with a health problem that's covered by your policy, such as a heart attack, cancer, multiple sclerosis (MS) and diabetes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my health problem covered under the policy?

You will need to check the definition section in the policy. Get legal help if you’re unsure about any of the fine print.

Are there any exclusions?

Yes, usually self-inflicted injuries and extreme sport injuries are excluded.

Can I have more than one policy?

Often trauma insurance policies are packaged as part of someone’s superannuation, so they may have more than one trauma policy if they have multiple super policies. It’s possible to claim against more than one trauma insurance policy.

What is my duty of disclosure?

Under some policies you have to tell your insurer about pre-existing health problems. If you don't, the insurer might try not to pay you—but often with help you can get them to pay.

When can I claim?

As soon as possible, but you may be able to claim even after a long time.
