What is covered?

The CAMS National Insurance Program provides two key areas of cover:

  1. Personal Accident Cover

  2. Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Cover

Personal Accident cover:

Personal Accident insurance can provide financial assistance to insured individuals (including CAMS license holders, crew, officials and volunteers) who sustain an injury during a CAMS affiliated club or permitted activity.

PLEASE NOTE: The Health Insurance Act 1973 (Cth) prohibits general insurers from covering any item listed within the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS).  For further information, please refer to our web site or visit www.medicare.gov.au

Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Cover

Public Liability insurance can provide protection for insured organisations and/or individuals against legal and associated costs that may arise if accused of negligence.  Professional Indemnity insurance provides protection for insured individuals against legal and associated costs that may arise if accused of negligent acts, errors or omissions.

How do I make a claim?

To make a claim for injury, take the following steps within 30 days of the injury occurring:

Step 1:

Download the claim form from this page or contact the CAMS National Office - phone 1300 883 959. At that time CAMS personnel will ensure that an incident report form has been received relating to the injury.

Step 2:

Complete the claim form, ensuring that the Medical Practitioners Statement is completed by a Medical Practitioner (a doctor rather than a physiotherapist or chiropractor). Ensure all questions are answered, and if claiming loss of income benefits ensure that proof of average weekly earnings is provided e.g. pay slips/pay summary for the past 12 months. If self employed a Tax Return or letter from your accountant is required outlining your average pre-injury base earnings from the business during the past 12 months.

Step 3: 

Return the completed claim form to:

Arthur J. Gallagher 
Sports Claims Department
PO Box 852, East Melbourne, VIC 8002.

All medical expenses tax invoices, receipts and private health insurance rebate statements should be sent in with the claim form. The CAMS specialist claims officer can be contacted on 03 9412 1555 or claims.melbourneaffinity@ajg.com.au. An 'Acknowledgement of Claim' notice advising the claim number will be forwarded direct to the claimant within 3 working days of receipt by the Arthur J. Gallagher office. Any incomplete details or additional requirements will also be advised at this time.

Step 4:

The claims officer will liaise with you on the progress and completion of your claim.

Note: With ongoing loss of income it is necessary to provide medical certificates at least every 4 weeks.

Itemised non-Medicare medical expenses receipts for reimbursement should be sent to Arthur J. Gallagher periodically, ensuring that the claimant’s name and claim number is clearly identifiable.
