We aim to provide positive and consistent underwriting outcomes to your members or employees. When they apply for additional cover, you can be confident that we will:

  • provide an expert decision in line with or ahead of the market

  • strive to meet and exceed service level standards
  • focus on getting members or employees covered as quickly as possible and only suspend applications as a last resort.

Enabling a quicker return to work

We provide the following support at claim time, to help members and employees return to health and re-enter the workforce sooner.

CaseWorks

We’ve partnered with CaseWorks Australia to create a simpler and more personal claims process for your members or employees with mental illnesses. Our new partnership with CaseWorks is designed to:

  • make it easier to lodge mental health claims for GSC by having a registered nurse conduct home visits on our behalf and helping them complete their initial claim forms (a task we understand can be daunting for those submitting a mental health claim)
  • capture the right information upfront to speed up the assessment process
  • optimise the relationship between the super fund, employer, claimant and their treating doctor to help them regain their health and return to work sooner.

This service is offered on a needs basis and we welcome the opportunity to consider the appropriateness of CaseWorks for your members or employees.

Rehabilitation services

Our dedicated rehabilitation team is committed to supporting members and employees by facilitating successful return-to-work outcomes. Find out more in our rehabilitation brochure. Available for some type of covers.
