What is trauma insurance?

Trauma insurance provides lump sum cover if you are diagnosed with a specified illness or injury. These include major illnesses or injuries that will have a significant impact on a person's life, such as cancer or a stroke.

There are many different individual trauma incidents that can be covered through trauma insurance. Each policy will have a specific list of covered medical conditions and the specific definition of each condition may differ between each insurer too.

The outlined list of conditions and their associated definitions are used when assessing a claim, so it’s important to review the Product Disclosure Statement to understand what you will be covered for before you apply.


Why do I need trauma insurance?

Suffering a major trauma event could mean there may be a number of significant financial ramifications that you and your family have to deal with.

Trauma insurance can help financially support your private medical costs, rehabilitation treatment, pay for specialist medical equipment and help cover bills and other expenses while you recover.


How much trauma insurance cover do I need?

Getting the right amount of cover is important when it comes to choosing your trauma insurance. Too little cover can mean you’re not as supported as you would need to be at claim time, while too much cover can mean you’re paying more than you have to. Our life insurance calculator helps you determine how much cover you may need.


How does my health affect my trauma insurance application?

Insurers generally take into account different personal and lifestyle attributes when considering a trauma insurance application, including your age, height, weight, medical history, occupation, family health history and smoking status.

If you have pre-existing health issues when you apply for cover, you may need to pay a higher premium rate than normal (known as a ‘premium loading’) to cover the additional risk or the insurer may apply an exclusion to that condition or in some cases an insurer could potentially decline the application.
