Where can I find a personal accident form?

The Claim Notification must be submitted to Sportscover immediately after the injury is sustained (within a maximum period of 120 days after the injury), not at the conclusion of your treatment.
I’ve tried to access my Public Liability Certificate of Currency on the Marsh Advantage website but I get message “Your ID could not be located”?
The registration/affiliation process needs to be completed before your certificate will be available on our website. Even though you may have paid your registration fees, the certificate won’t be available till Gymnastics Australia has completed the registration process – please contact your relevant state office to find our more information about time frames. If you are still unable to access your certificate after contacting your state body - Marsh Advantage can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300 306 383.
Do I need a claim number before making a claim?
No, you will be issued with a claim number shortly after the claim has been lodged. This claim number can then be used on any further documentation that needs to be submitted to Sportscover in order to support your claim.
Can I claim the Medicare gap under my Personal Accident policy?
No, insurers are unable to pay claims already covered under Medicare, including the Medicare gap in accordance with the Health Insurance Act (Cth) 1973.

A $50 excess is applicable for each and every non-Medicare medical treatment or emergency transport claim in accordance with the policy terms and conditions.
