Club members and volunteers of all UNSW sports clubs are insured for personal accident cover by Chubb insurance though UNSW Sport and Recreation.
This is a base level of cover and will not substantially cover treatment in a private hospital. Whilst there are some benefits paid for non-medicare expenses, there may be an excess and a percentage of the expenses which are not covered.
If you rely solely on the Uni’s Accident Cover, you may be treated in the public health system under Medicare which can involve substantial delays for treatment including surgery.
The club strongly recommends that players purchase their own private health insurance.
