Public Liability

Here is a copy of the General Product Public Liability Certificate.

How to make a claim?

A committee member needs to send an ANU Sport incident report form to Paul Hooper paul.hooper@anu-sport.com.au detailing the incident. The club will then receive a confirmation email from ANU Sport that the report was received, with an acknowledgement that it occurred during and ANUSRA sanctioned activity, and next steps.

The injured individual then needs to send a claim to Paul Hooper paul.hooper@anu-sport.com.au for first review:

  1. Claim form
  2. All medical invoices/receipts and medical report
  3. Any out-of-pocket expenses

ANU Sport will then forward the claim to the University Insurance Office on your behalf. The University Insurance Office handles these claims and is the liaison point with Chubb Insurance as it is the ANU group policy that ANU Sport is covered by.

What is included in the claim?

The claim will be with the ANU’s Group Personal Accident and Sickness, policy number 01P0528644.

Here is the Policy wording

Please note the following surrounding policy coverage:

  1. This policy includes coverage for medical expenses that do not attract a Medicare rebate.
  2. If an expense is claimable through Medicare and there is a gap left over, unfortunately Chubb Insurance would not be able to cover that gap due to government legislation.
  3. You have up to 12 months from the date of injury to lodge your claim.
  4. The cover for Non-Medicare Medical Expenses (such as physiotherapy) is 100% of expenses (after private health insurance benefit) incurred to a maximum of $20,000.
  5. An international student will usually not be eligible for Medicare so they would claim through their overseas health cover first, and thereafter lodge the gap with Chubb to be assessed.
  6. There is a separate heading called out-of-pocket expenses, which carries a maximum limit of $5,000. This includes expenses like medical aids, local transportation for purposes of seeking medical treatment and other non-medical equipment.
  7. Should any further medical expenses which are not claimable with Medicare or not fully covered by a Private Health Insurer be incurred, please forward these accounts (with the Health Fund Benefit Statement where applicable) for further consideration.

If you have any queries or concerns along the way, please don’t hesitate to contact ANU Sport.
