Trauma Insurance– what's covered?


What's Covered By Trauma Protection?

Trauma insurance can provide a lump sum of money to help you meet medical expenses and clear debts when you have suffered a medical trauma. But – what does it actually cover?

While the conditions covered will vary from policy to policy, we have listed below the trauma conditions and events that trigger a full trauma payment under Onepath’s Onecare Trauma Cover comprehensive insurance policy. Onepath is one of Canstar’s 2014 winners for outstanding value trauma insurance. Please note that there are terms and conditions for claim associated with the trauma conditions listed and this list is intended simply as a general indication of the types of traumas that may trigger compensation.
