If you are a Studentsafe Inbound University or Inbound Learner policyholder, you will need to follow the standard Claim Process above. However, there are some exceptions to this:
If you are a Studentsafe Inbound University policyholder and you attend your Campus Health Centre, you may be eligible to have your consultation fees paid by Allianz Global Assistance without paying the centre or filing a claim form. You will only be able to use this benefit if you are covered under your policy wording. The attending GP or nurse will be able to tell you if you are eligible.
List of Campus Health Centres
You may be prescribed medications after visiting your Campus Health Centre. If you do, you may be eligible to have your prescription fees paid by Allianz Global Assistance without paying for the script first or filing a claim form. You will only be eligible for this if your Campus Health Centre visit was also paid directly by Allianz Global Assistance.
In some cases, you can apply to us to have a claim payment made directly to the hospital (if the charges are going to be substantial). To commence this process please complete a claim form as soon as possible prior to the procedure or call us on 0800 486 004.
If you have paid at least 50% of the standard annual premium for your policy, you have cover under your policy if your prescription optical aids are lost, stolen or your vision changes while you are studying. We have an arrangement with two optical providers. If you use either of these two providers, you will not need to pay them first or complete a claim form. They will invoice Allianz Global Assistance and we will pay them. The maximum benefit limit is $200 per year.
