NSW Workers Compensation Scheme Update

work cover update


Further to our most recent correspondence in early March advising of significant changes to be implemented across the NSW scheme, we have received further communication from iCare Workers Insurance in relation to the transition of policy management functions.

What we know:

  • All existing policies with a renewal date on or after 30 April 2017 will have the upcoming policy renewal and all future policy functions managed by iCare.
  • Actual wage declaration forms the current and prior policy years will continue to be managed by your existing Agent.
  • iCare requires that a Letter of Appointment is provided by all Insurance House clients.

What this means for you:

  • Insurance House will continue to manage your policy renewal and adjustment in line with these changes.
  • Insurance House will be in contact with you prior to your policy renewal to obtain all required information to ensure that your policy is renewed in a smooth and timely manner.
  • We will provide a Letter of Appointment template and ask that you sign and return this to Insurance House, so that we can continue to manage your Workers Compensation policy/s.
  • You will also receive reminders and policy renewal documents directly from iCare in the lead up to your policy renewal.
  • Once your policy is renewed, premiums will be payable directly to iCare.

We are here to help:

  • Insurance House has direct access to Underwriting Teams and Account Managers within iCare to ensure that we continue to provide great service and ensure that the transition proceeds smoothly.
