Player Insurance

It is mandatory that players at Sydney University Football Club have private health + extras cover.

All  players  must  have  private  medical  insurance  and  will  be  charged  at  a  concession  rate  at  The Sports  Clinic. 

Players  without  private  health  insurance  will  be  charged  for  the  consultation  (at  the student  concession  rates,  if  they  are  full  time  students). 

All  players  MUST fill in an ARU registration form PRIOR to playing in any matches. Any unregistered players  will not be permitted to participate in games until the form is completed.

Please discuss with your team manager whether you need to fill out insurance forms with respect to specific injuries.

The Club will not cover any injuries unrelated to Rugby.

Serious Injuries

For all serious injuries, players are to complete the ARU Insurance form and have the club administrator sign the document.

It is the players responsibility to have the insurance form completed and lodge the claim within 30 days of the injury!

This insurance plan provides payment of 100% of Non-Medicare Medical Expenses after any reimbursement from your Private Health fund.  A $100 excess applies to each and every claim and the maximum benefit payable is $3,000.

Quick steps to follow:

  1. Pay medical fees upfront
  2. Claim all Medicare Medical Expenses from Medicare
  3. Claim all Non-Medicare Medical Expenses from your private health fund
  4. Submit a claim to the ARU/Gow Gates sports insurance plan (as per below)
    1. Obtain a claim form:
    2. Complete the Claim Form
    3. Lodge the claim form within 30 days of the injury
    4. Lodge additional documentation as required
  5. If you are still out of pocket following ALL of the above steps, you can make a claim to SUFC’s injured players fund in October, 2017, where you must provide copies of all receipts/rebates

Refer to the instructions on the form or the ARU Sports Injury Claims for more information

Please note: Additional documentation may/may not be required by SLE in addition to the claim form (Step 4). Therefore, it is important to submit your claim form as soon as you have completed the details, within 30 days of injury, even before you have all accounts/receipts. This will ensure limited delays to the claims process.
