icare are introducing a new way to buy workers compensation insurance in NSW

 

How is Workers Insurance changing?
From February 2017, there will be a simplified way to buy workers compensation insurance in NSW.
icare will directly undertake workers insurance policies for any new business customers under the NSW Workers Compensation Scheme.

 

What does this mean for a new business in NSW?
From March 2017 any new business being established in NSW will buy their compulsory workers compensation insurance policies directly with icare online or via the icare Customer Support
Centre on 13 44 22

 

What is icare doing to improve the customer experience?
Customers can call our Customer Support Centre on 13 44 22, to talk directly to a customerservice representative about their new policy.
icare will be launching soon, an online self-service site to consolidate workers insurance information in one place to ensure transparency and accuracy. It will be a simple interface for
customers to buy and renew workers compensation insurance.

The icare Insurance Specialist Team on 13 55 22 is available to discuss premiums and injury
prevention strategies with our industry groups.

 

Can I still use a Broker?
Brokers are an important partner of icare and will work together with a new business to buy a
workers compensation policy to protect their employees. Broker details will be noted on any
new polices.

 

Does icare manage claims on new workers insurance policies?
Customers will be able to choose from one of icare’s five partner insurance agencies – Allianz,
CGU, EML, GIO or QBE for their claims management.
