Medibank Compensation Questionnaire
When you have suffered an injury or illness that is subject to compensation you will most likely require medical services. These services need to be marked as related to the injury or illness because if you pursue your legal rights at a later date, you will need evidence from Medibank outlining the medical expenses which it paid specifically relating to your medical condition, including any gap payments.
This form is also required for those who do not want to pursue their legal rights, as it is a member requirement within Medibank’s Fund Rules to complete the Compensation Questionnaire if the member has suffered an injury or illness that is subject to compensation.
If you have any questions about the compensation process or your specific circumstances, you can contact the Compensation Department via:
