Claiming Medical Expenses

The dedicated Claims Management team works with police officers to help them access their medical expense entitlements to support recovery.


Police officers have all work illness and injury costs covered.  Work related medical accounts, travel and other associated costs are to be sent to the Claims Team to pay.  If a work related illness/injury expense is paid by the officer or you as their family, all costs will be able to be reimbursed.


Police officers can also have the out of pocket costs of many non-work illness and injuries reimbursed.


For more information contact Police Family Support Email or call 6229 5615 (8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday). 


Please note:  Staff and PAO are part of the state workers' compensation scheme, so approved work related injury and illness expenses are covered by the Insurance Commission of Western Australia (ICWA).  Non-work or personal illness and injury are covered by personal leave (including sick leave) entitlements and Medicare as well as private health insurance.
