Has your child been in the wars this year? Even if you were covered by Medicare, you might be able to claim against the School insurance.
Did you know that if your child has sustained an injury on the football field, at the beach, or even on holiday in Margaret River, you may be able to make a claim through the P&F-sponsored insurance policy?
As with all policies, there is fine print and some paperwork to complete, but things like bone fractures, breaks and dislocations are generally eligible for “compensation” payouts. This is not a reimbursement of costs incurred, but rather a lump sum benefit. So even if all treatment was covered under Medicare and the public system, you may be able to make a claim.
Claims related to injuries that are not covered by Medicare (for example, dental injuries and physiotherapy) have more conditions attached, but at any time you can contact the insurers to determine whether a claim is possible.
Policy and contact details are available from the website. Claims should be lodged within 12 months of an injury event.
