Football Australia, in conjunction with Gow-Gates, have arranged national insurance coverage for all their affiliated Associations, Clubs, Officials and Players. Gow-Gates offers Capital Football and its members an online tool to access important information about the Insurance Program.
In respect to the Personal Accident coverage the schedule of benefits should be considered as basic and entry level. Capital Football encourage all players and others covered by this policy to take out private health insurance.
We ask club officials to take the time to read the following information and encourage all club members to do the same. It is most important all are aware of the coverage provided and the procedure to follow in the event of a claim prior to an incident arising. Failure to be aware of the extent of coverage and procedures to follow often leads to unnecessary delays and, in some cases, disappointment.
The level of cover and the competitive costs have been achieved to benefit all clubs, coaches and individual members who are part or looking to be part of this Program and therefore, it is extremely important that everyone supports this initiative.
