StudentCover Frequently Asked Questions

 

How can I get StudentCover?

 

How can I get StudentCover?

There are two ways to get StudentCover. Some schools arrange to have their entire enrollment covered. This is known as "Whole of School" cover and is the most economical method. Alternatively, individuals can obtain StudentCover online at a cost of just $29.00 per year -   apply now

As an individual why is the policy only available online?

Our aim is to provide StudentCover at a very affordable price. Originally this was done through reducing administrative costs by having schools assist in arranging the policy, collecting premiums etc. Unfortunately due to legislation introduced on 11 March 2004 (Financial Services Reform Act) we must now provide numerous documents including a Product Disclosure Statement and invoices etc. for every individual insured student, previously one policy was issued per school.

Why can I not pay by cheque?

As explained in the above question it is necessary under the legislation to provide individual policy documentation, we are also committed to providing StudentCover at a reasonable cost (just $29.00 per year). To enable us to do this it is necessary to create the documentation online and this requires real-time acceptance of the application. The cost of processing payments by cheque (or cash) would impact on the premium, and as such the only options are via credit card or BPay.
