Get a new policy
In NSW, we act as an authorised agent of icare workers insurance, who sets the premiums. From the end of February 2017, new policies can be purchased from icare workers insurance/mypolicy directly.
Switch to QBE
Inform your client’s current insurer they wish to cancel their policy before it expires, otherwise they’ll be legally obliged to renew it. You can do this by sending them a completed QBE Policy Transfer Form.
Certificate of currency
For a copy of previously issued certificates of currency contact us on 133 723. For an amended certificate fax a completed Request for Certificate of Currency Form to (02) 9375 4855.
Making a claim
To make a claim, your client needs to carry out the following steps:
- Report notifiable injuries to icare workers insurance
- Tell us about the injury by completing a First Contact Form or contacting their local branch. If it’s a significant injury report it within 48 hours. To benefit from a nil claims excess, report less serious injuries within five days
- Give the worker a Workers Claim Form
- Complete an Employers Report of Injury
- Send the worker’s completed claim form and Certificate of Capacity to us within seven business days of receipt. A case manager will assess the claim and come back with a liability decision within seven business days.
