Cash to use your way
Accidents can be unexpected, inconvenient and sometimes disruptive. Personal Accident Insurance gives you flexible, financial help to assist with recovery from accidents big and small.
We get it, accidents happen. We also understand the path to recovery can be dotted with unexpected costs: transport, meals, cleaners, shopping and visits to the doctor. That’s why it’s no accident that Personal Accident Insurance pays you cash to help you recover.
Hospital and medical costs
Personal Accident Insurance can help fill the gaps not covered by your health insurance. This can include your excess, any gap fees your doctor charges, and other payments not covered by your hospital cover.
We pay you cash when your claim is approved, giving you the flexibility to use it to recover your way.
Protect yourself from unexpected costs
Get up to $15,000 for specified injuries and up to $50,000 for accidental death (for $50,000 cover level)*.
Big and small accidents
Personal Accident Insurance pays you cash for specified injuries including fractures, burns and dislocations, and accidental death*. Read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) and Financial Services Guide for the list of injuries covered.
Choose your level of cover
Choose from two levels of cover: $25,000 and $50,000. The $25,000 cover level pays from $250 to $7,500 for specified injuries and $25,000 for accidental death*. The $50,000 cover level pays double the amounts payable on the $25,000 cover level*.
Claim multiple times
You can make multiple claims up to a maximum total of $25,000 or $50,000, depending on the level of cover you take out during the life of the policy.
“I signed up for Personal Accident Insurance a few years ago. At the time I thought ‘why not?’ – and wow, I’m so glad I did. I was walking along outside a shopping centre, it had been wet, and I tripped over. I knew I had done something really bad, I could feel it – and it turned out I needed a hip replacement. I was in hospital for nine days recovering, although I am as good as gold now! I remembered I had Personal Accident Insurance and rang HCF, who said put a claim in and they would sort it out. I got a lovely surprise as a cash payment went straight into my bank account in a week or so, it was wonderful. It helped with my bills and HCF were just excellent. I feel so blessed that I am with HCF. You don’t feel stressed as you know you’re covered.
I’m so glad I’m with HCF, I was so pleasantly surprised with how easy it all was, and the payment really helped me in my recovery. I feel like HCF really showed me a level of care that you don’t get everywhere.”
