We understand

Our Claims Philosophy

We adopt a professional, compassionate and positive approach to claims management and actively seek to keep members at the heart of everything we do. We acknowledge that each claim is unique and must be dealt with on its own merits and we’re committed to being easy to deal with and providing outcomes to our members in a timely manner.

  • We’ll communicate the process clearly;
  • We at all times treat our claimants, members and their beneficiaries with the utmost respect and empathy;
  • We’ll pursue claims with the Insurer on the member’s behalf that we consider both reasonable and to have a reasonable prospect of success; and
  • We’ll make prompt payments on successful claims.

If you need help

With the claims journey, understanding what’s required of you, completing claim forms or providing requested claim information, we’ll work with you and the Insurer to find a solution. You can appoint a representative to act on your behalf during the claims process.

We’re also here to help if you need interpreting or hearing support services.

Our insurance claims process typically has six key steps and there are roles for us, the insurer and you.
