Our promise to you

Be there for you, when you need us most

When it comes to workers insurance, we understand that some policies and claims can be more complex than others, which is why we’ve made it easy for you to get in touch — on the phone, in writing, through email or via our website.

  • Focus on resolving your policy and claims queries in a timely manner via our Contact us page.
  • Provide you with a quote for Workers Insurance via our website, or through a dedicated underwriter (for more complex workers insurance policies).
  • Give you peace of mind knowing you are always covered. We renew your policy within six weeks of renewal date and provide a Certificate of Currency at the time of your renewal, or you can confirm your cover at any time via Employer Lookup.
  • Offer helpful answers to the most commonly asked questions in our online knowledge base.
  • In addition to these services, policy holders can access our Underwriting Team to better understand their risk as well as their performance.

Give you peace of mind when managing your claims

We’re focused on the person not the process and that means we expect our Claims Service Providers (CSPs) that manage claims on behalf of icare aim to deliver the best return-to-work outcomes for injured workers and employers. Our CSPs are held to the following service standards:

  • Contact injured workers and treatment professionals within three days of reporting an injury and keep you updated through the life of the claim.
  • Provide timely and transparent decision-making throughout the claims process, delivering an initial liability decision within seven days of reporting a claim.
  • Deliver medical treatment decisions as soon as possible and within 21 days from the submission of a request. We provide support with complex treatment requests through access to our Medical Support Panel who offer medical advice and expertise to fast-track decision-making for both the injured worker and their employer.
  • Provide an Injury Management Plan for claims with more than seven days of incapacity that includes return-to-work strategies, outlines treatment approvals and the obligations of the injured worker and their employer.
  • Provide you with a point of escalation in case things don’t go to plan. If your CSP is unable to resolve your concerns you can lodge a complaint with the icare complaints team.

Provide you with tools and knowledge to create safer workplaces — we’re in this together

At icare, we care deeply about delivering value-driven insurance products and services that lead to injury prevention. This forms part of our continued focus to provide bespoke prevention initiatives that limit risk and promote premium affordability because safer, healthier workplaces benefit everyone.

  • Help you understand how your premium is calculated and provide you with data and industry observations to help manage risk and improve performance.
  • Progress our range of incentives, discounts and programs to help businesses in NSW lower the cost of their insurance premiums.
  • Continually reduce injury rates through offering scalable and bespoke prevention programs that improve workplace health and safety and are exclusive to policy holders.
  • Optimise our education and training programs to help customers improve workplace safety culture. This includes continually expanding our online knowledge base with industry-leading information, insights and tools, so you feel empowered to maximise workplace health and safety outcomes.
