This summary of cover provides factual information about the Basketball Victoria Insurance Program.
2.
This information is only a summary of the cover provided. The policy with full conditions is available at by contacting
Basketball Victoria.
3.
This insurance program commences on 1 September 2016 to 1 September 2017
4.
V Insurance facilitates this insurance program which provides benefits to those registered members of Basketball Victoria
who, through injury or accident, incur financial loss and who would otherwise not have received assistance. The program
seeks to provide benefits to those most exposed and to maintain protection at the lowest possible cost to membership. It
therefore cannot provide 100% cover or a benefit for every loss that occurs. Federal Government Legislation prevents
insurance companies from paying any insurance benefit for a medical service that is covered by Medicare. This legislation
also applies to the Medicare gap. In addition to these policies all members and officials are encouraged to take out private
health insurance.
5.
Basketball Victoria is not and does not represent itself as a registered insurance broker by endorsing the products outlined
in this claim form.

HOW TO MAKE A CLAIM
Dear Basketball Victoria member,
Please find attached a claim form. Before lodging this form, please ensure all sections are fully completed.
Failure to complete all sections of this form properly may delay settlement of your claim.
1. Only one claim form (per injury) is required. A claim form should be completed and submitted as soon as you
become aware that you will be making a claim. You do not have to wait until after you have completed
treatment for your injury to lodge your claim form.
2. Please ensure that you fully complete pages 5, 6 & 7 and sign and date the Declaration.
3. Please ensure that your Association/Club official completes and signs the Association/Club Declaration on
page 6.
4. For claims involving Loss of Income:
a) You must complete page 8 and have your employer/salary officer complete page 8. If self employed, you
must have your accountant complete these details;
b) You must attach at least two payslips including the most recent full period pre-Injury.
c) Have your Attending Physician complete the page titled “Doctor’s Statement” on page 11. This may be
completed by a Physiotherapist for minor injuries only.
5. For claims involving Non-Medicare medical expenses:
a) Have your treating practitioner complete the “Attending Physician” statement on page 11 making sure all
Medical treatment is certified necessary by your attending practitioner and incurred within Australia. (An

treatment is covered by your Private Health Fund please send their rebate advice with a copy of the relevant
account.

No cover is provided for Surgeons, Anaesthetists, Doctors, X-rays or other accounts which are partly covered
by Medicare. The Australian Health Insurance Act does not permit the insurer to contribute to any charges
covered by Medicare (including the Medicare Gap).

and theatre fees, dental, ambulance (if not otherwise covered), chiropractic, physiotherapy, osteopath,
naturopath, massage and pay for orthotics prescribed by a surgeon to aid recovery.
