The Health Services Union NSW is protecting HSU members by providing members with accident journey insurance.

Who can claim accident journey insurance?
To be entitled to the benefits of the policy you must be a current financial member of the Health Services Union. It is important to note that you must be a full member of the union at the time of the accident to be covered under this policy. Pre-existing conditions are not insured.
The benefit ceases when a financial member reaches 75 years of age.
