Members of Ice Hockey NSW are covered under the Ice Hockey Australia (IHA) National Insurance scheme that covers the following categories:
- Sports Injury
- Public Liability
- Directors and Officers
- Professional Indemnity
- Corporate Travel
- Office Insurance
All insurance coverage is via Arthur J. Gallagher and Co. (AJG) who can be found at www.ajg.com.au/sport
Under Australian Law, this insurance does not cover items covered by Medicare. The insurance does cover non-Medicare items such as physiotherapy and dental where referred by a doctor. Notwithstanding this, sports insurance in Australia is designed to cover “catastrophic” events with minor treatment being covered by Medicare and private health insurance.
As a result, members are strongly urged to take out private health insurance cover. Sports injury insurance is not meant to be a substitute for prudent personal Health Fund insurance cover.
Making a claim
More information and details of how to make a claim can be found on the IHA website.
Injury Reporting Form
