For your information, we outline some important information concerning the Student Cover policy:-
The policy only responds to Non-Medicare related accounts - therefore any accounts that are covered by Medicare cannot be claimed.
Non-Medicare Medical Expenses means:- Expenses that are not subject to any full or partial Medicare rebate, nor recoverable by an Insured Person from any other source, incurred within 12 calendar months of the Insured sustaining the injury.
The "Medicare Gap" is not covered by the Student Cover policy in accordance with Government regulations
The "Private Health Gap" is covered only in respect of school activities or where they relate to overseas medical costs and a $20 excess of each loss applies.
You are responsible to have the Attending Physician's Statement (APS) completed. The insurers will not reimburse you for any expense incurred.
For more information please refer to the second page of the Policy Wording section 10.
Circumstances and documentation will vary from claim to claim - the above information is typical for an injury.
