Affiliation Benefits - Insurance

Insurance

Gymnastics Australia offers access to the National Risk Protection Programme (NRPP) which provides a set of insurance policies for different membership categories at a nationally negotiated rate.

The coverage provided under the Programme comprises:

  • general liability;

  • management liability; and

  • personal accident.

Change of Broker 

For the last 10 years JLT have been the brokers for GA and its members. We recently have undertaken a tender process to review the risk management services for the NRPP.  

 Following the tender process GA have appointed NEW BROKERS to manage the insurances. 

 The new brokers are – Marsh. We will be working through a transitional plan with Marsh however effective 23/8/2017 – any query, claim update etc can be directed to...

The change in our brokers does not change the Insurer i.e. QBE & Zurich & Chubb [travel] and Marsh have the authority to deal with all of our insurers. 

The change from JLT to Marsh is reflective of the need to change brokers after a long standing and valued relationship with JLT. 

Expiry of the Insurance 

As most clubs would be aware the insurances under the NRPP were renewed for a period ending 30/9/2017.

GA is currently working with our broker services (Marsh) for insurances for the remainder of the year and 2018.

GA can assure that continued Insurance coverage will be in place for all affiliated clubs for the reminder of the year from 1st October 2017 until 31st December 2017. A copy of the Certificate of Currency for this period will be issued to all affiliated clubs who are part of the NRPP.

Travel Insurance for members

Gymnastics Australia (GA) is pleased to offer access for Affiliated Clubs to GA’s Travel Insurance. This is in addition to the existing covers available in the extensive National Risk Protection Programme.

Whilst GA's current Programme covers Members for Personal Accident Insurance in Australia, access to Travel Insurance will provide cover for a range of risks that may otherwise be limited when competing in international events. Three of these are listed below:

  1.      Medical Expenses;

  2.      Luggage and Personal Effects; and

  3.      Missed Transport Connections

One of the most significant benefits associated with GA’s Travel Insurance Policy is that it covers 'Participation'. Many other travel policies strictly exclude sports participation; therefore, if you were injured whilst participating in a gymnastics event overseas, you may be unable to claim on your travel insurance. With participation included, the GA Travel Policy is better suited to a gymnastics tour. This is a substantial and unique benefit for affiliated Clubs who have previously struggled to find appropriate and comparable insurance when travelling.

Process

It is very important that Clubs understand the process for placement of Travel Insurance as it is outlined as follows:

  1.      Download the Tour Endorsement and Travel Insurance Application Form* (as below);

  2.      Complete all relevant details as requested

  3.      Submit the Form to GA (decision of endorsement may take up to two weeks);

Upon endorsement:

  1.      GA will provide a quote directly to the individual/Club/State Association Member for Travel Insurance;

  2.      Club confirms quote and placement of cover and pays premium prior to travel

* All Applications for Travel Insurance must first be endorsed by GA. All Clubs/State applicants should also note GA's Club-Program Tour Guidelines, as provided below.

Please note: Before entering into an insurance contract with a general insurer, please ensure you are aware of the policy wordings, terms and conditions.
