As a Tennis Tasmania member, you are covered if you sustain an injury whilst playing in sanctioned and/or officially organised tennis events, training, competitions, tournaments, attending social functions, performing voluntary work for the club and travelling to and from such events, anywhere in Australia.
The policy covers items such as the following non Medicare Medical related costs; physiotherapy, chiropractor, private hospital accommodation and theatre fees (where Medicare does not apply), ambulance transport costs. The policy also includes ancillary benefits, such as loss of income.
Due to the Health Insurance Act (Cth) 1973, insurers are unable to contribute to any charges covered by Medicare (including the Medicare Gap). Therefore any charges for treatment from a doctor, surgeon, anaesthetist or surgeon’s assistant are not covered. It also means charges for x-ray, some MRI scans (if Medicare registered) and public hospitals are not covered.
Full details relating to the terms and conditions, limitations and exclusions are contained in the policy wording.
