Personal Injury Insurance

All Kew Comets players and volunteers are covered by a personal injury insurance policy through the Australian Football National Risk Protection Programme.

The club has elected to upgrade from the standard cover to platinum level. The policy provides cover for accidental injuries that occur during club sanctioned, football related activities. By law, this policy can only cover medical costs that are not covered by Medicare.

What does this mean?

Generally, the following costs will be covered, up to a $7,500 limit per medical claim:

  • Ambulance
  • Physiotherapy
  • Dental care
  • Private hospital accommodation
  • and Loss of income

The following are not covered:

Doctors’ fees (including X-ray, anaesthetist, pathology) - as these are covered by Medicare and private health cover
