Management of Needlestick Injury

Needlestick  Insurance Cover

Management of needlestick injury in part comes down to being adequately protected if such an event were to happen. On top of the trauma of the situation, Workcover entitlements often do not provide sufficient benefits and hence the need for Needlestick insurance cover.

However, not all Needlestick Insurance policies provide adequately for the medical and healthcare professionals who serve our community. Does your policy provide a specific Needlestick injury insurance cover option? Some policies do not provide any extra payment for needlestick injury whereas other policies do.

How can you apply for Needle-stick insurance cover?

  • Depending on the insurance company, you may apply for a separate cover/policy or additional cover as part of your Life/TPD cover, Income Protection or Trauma policy.
  • There are a number of important issues to consider when comparing insurance policies. It may take a considerable amount of time for you to research each insurance company’s product offering. A financial adviser can spead up the process as we have easy access to product information and can help you choose the product that matches your particular needs and circumstances.
