Workers' Compensation claims

If you’re injured at work, your first priority is to see your doctor and let your employer know what’s going on as soon as possible.

You (or someone acting on your behalf) must make an entry on your employer’s register of injuries.

Once we have received your claim, we’ll do the following:
  • Assign a case manager who is responsible for supporting your claim.
  • Send you a letter with your claim number and the contact details of your case manager.
  • Keep you up to date on the progress of your claim and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions.
  • Tell you within four weeks of receiving your claim whether the claim has been accepted or not.
We understand that not everyone agrees with decisions that have been made about their claim. You can contact us on 1300 130 664 or lodge a complaint via our online form
Early in the claims process you may be invited to participate in a digital survey called MyJourney. This short 12-question survey helps us to understand how we can best support you and tailor our service delivery to your needs. You can contact your case manager if you have any questions about MyJourney.
Getting the treatment you need and being actively involved in your recovery may help you return to health sooner. You don’t have to be fully recovered to return to work. Our goal is to help you get the treatment you need, and return to the workplace as soon as possible.
Watch our video to find out how we work hard to determine what compensation you are legally entitled to so that you can focus on your recovery. 
You’re more likely to have better physical and social outcomes when you recover at work. Watch our video to find out more about how we’ll support you.
Our resources page provides information for both employers and workers about injury management and return to work best practice including helpful forms, tools and links.
Once we receive your claim, we’ll send you and your employer a letter confirming receipt of your claim. You will be provided with a claim number and our contact details. 

We’ll send a letter to you on the same day your claim is lodged providing you with your claim number. We’ll also assign a case manager to your claim, who will contact you within 3 working days to discuss your claim. 

Your case manager assesses your claim and makes a liability decision to either accept or decline your claim.

If we don’t have enough information to make a liability decision, your claim will be pended or deferred while further information is being gathered.

Your case manager is your go-to person for any questions. Because we work as a team, you might not always get to talk to the same case manager, but we’ll do our best to give you just one contact.
If your claim is assessed and liability can’t be determined without more information, your case manager will notify you and your employer of the delay and the reasons behind it. Your case manager will request the required additional information, so that a decision can be made on receipt.
If your claim is declined, your case manager will contact you to discuss the decision. You’ll also receive a formal decline notice in writing, which will outline reasons for the decision as well as your appeal rights, should you disagree with the decision. 

If your claim is accepted, you’re entitled to reasonable costs associated with medical treatment in relation to your injury.

Typically, your treating provider will bill us directly. If you have paid for services, then you can send the receipts to us for reimbursement.

Initial appointments for passive therapies (for example, physiotherapy) don’t require pre-approval from us. However, after your first consultation we’ll likely request information from the treating provider before paying for further services. 

If you are referred to see a specialist (for example, a surgeon) then this may require pre-approval from us. If you want to obtain pre-approval or if you are unsure about whether pre-approval is required, contact your case manager.

Work with your employer, treating doctor or rehabilitation specialist to develop a plan to help your recovery and return to work. Receive medical treatment and participate in any required rehabilitation or retraining.

For more information on how to be actively engaged in your recovery, ask your case manager for a copy of the Allianz Worker Recovery Kit. The kit provides practical advice on what to do in the recovery process, and also provides a useful template so you can start setting goals and commitments to support your recovery. 

We may engage a workplace rehabilitation provider to assist with your claim. Workplace rehabilitation providers are accredited to provide rehabilitation services to help you return to work.

A workplace rehabilitation provider will attend your medical reviews with you and collaborate with you, your doctor and employer to develop plans to enable a safe and reasonable return work within your capacity.
