How to make a personal accident claim?
To make a claim for injury, take the following steps within 30 days of the injury occurring:
Obtain a claim form from the CAMS National Office - Phone 1300 883 959. At that time CAMS personnel will ensure that an incident report form has been received relating to the injury.
Complete the Claim Form, ensuring that the Medical Practitioners Statement is completed by a Medical Practitioner (a doctor rather than a physiotherapist or chiropractor). Ensure all questions are answered, and if claiming loss of income benefits ensure that proof of average weekly earnings is provided e.g. pay slips/pay summary for the past 12 months. If self employed a Tax Return or letter from your accountant is required outlining your average pre-injury base
earnings from the business during the past 12 months.
Return the completed claim form to:
OAMPS Insurance Brokers Limited
Sports Claims Department
PO Box 852, East Melbourne, VIC 8002.
All medical expenses tax invoices, receipts and private health insurance rebate statements should be sent in with the claim form. The CAMS specialist claims officer can be contacted on 03 9412 1555 or firstname.lastname@example.org. An “Acknowledgement of Claim” notice advising the claim number will be forwarded direct to the claimant within 3 working days of receipt by the OAMPS office. Any incomplete details or additional requirements will also be advised at this time.
The claims officer will liaise with you on the progress and completion of your claim.
- With ongoing loss of income it is necessary to provide medical certificates at least every 4 weeks
- Itemised non Medicare medical expenses receipts for reimbursement should be sent to OAMPS periodically, ensuring that the claimant’s name and claim number is clearly identifiable.
