What our insurance covers

The Wynnum Vikings have the highest level of insurance cover available with JLT Sport - Platinum. Below is a list of examples of what is/is not covered under our policy. Please note we do not have Loss of Income cover - we highly recommend players seek their own Income Protection.

Note: Only injuries sustained during an official training session, an AFL/Club sanctioned match, travelling to/from an official club activity, participation in an official club function or tours/representative matches are eligible to be claimed using this insurance.

Platinum cover:

  • 90% reimbursement of NON-Medicare expenses
  • $7,500 maximum claim
  • $50 excess per claim

What are non-Medicare expenses?

Non-Medicare expenses are anything which is not normally covered under Medicare and you would not normally be able to claim a rebate from. Examples include:

  • Ambulance
  • Physiotherapist
  • Chiropractor
  • Dentist
  • Private hospital accommodation

What are Medicare expenses?

These are expenses you would normally be able to claim a Medicare benefit or rebate from. Examples include:

Whilst the Wynnum Vikings hold the highest possible insurance cover for our players, we strongly recommend each player has appropriate Private Health coverage and/or Loss of Income coverage which is suitable to each individuals' needs.
