Water Polo Australia has arranged this insurance program to provide benefits to those registered members 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 or additional insurance over and above the benefits defined in this summary. For any advice or additional cover please contact World Wide Sports Insurance.

Water Polo Australia does not hold an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL).
