Understand how trauma insurance fits within your personal insurance strategy

Trauma insurance is a lump sum insurance that covers you in the instance of serious injury or critical illness. It can be used to pay for medical costs, living expenses, therapy, debt repayments, and more.

While a useful type of insurance cover, depending on your financial situation it may not be a necessity. So we help you determine if trauma insurance is right for you and your family. And, should a trauma event occur, we handle the insurance claim on your behalf, and follow up until you receive payment.

Frequently asked questions

What is trauma insurance?

Trauma insurance works in much the same way as income protection insurance. It provides you with financial support in the event that you become critically injured or ill, and require extensive medical treatment.

With an active trauma insurance policy, you’ll receive a lump sum payment to cover all the necessary bills, expenses, and costs accrued during your recovery. It provides you with peace of mind that your finances are taken care of, and you’re able to access the right medical treatment and rehabilitation as you recover.

Is trauma insurance tax deductible in Australia?

Trauma insurance protection premiums are not a tax-deductible benefit under Australian tax rules. This is because it’s not considered a replacement for income. Instead, trauma insurance provides you with a lump sum payment to cover treatment and recovery for a medical condition or injury.

Can I use super to pay for trauma insurance protection?

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to pay for trauma insurance protection through your super fund.

What is generally covered in trauma insurance?

What’s covered under trauma insurance protection will change depending on the policy and the provider. However, there are a number of conditions you can expect to find covered on the majority of policies.

  • Heart conditions that require surgery, and conditions such as heart attack
  • Neurological conditions such as stroke, dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease
  • Major organ disorders, like chronic kidney failure, or major organ transplants
  • Common blood disorders that require treatment
  • Treatment and intensive care resulting from injury or illness
  • Permanent conditions resulting from injury or illness, such as loss of speech or hearing, blindness, loss of use of any limb, or any condition that results in a loss of independence.
