    MEDICAL COVER: I have read the attached document regarding the medical cover provided by UCT for sports injuries and I am fully aware of its contents. PLEASE NOTE: There is no medical cover for non UCT students; and ALL PLAYERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN MEDICAL EXPENSES.


    UCT Group and Funeral Cover Scheme                                                                                                                2010
    The University operates a Group and Funeral Cover Insurance Scheme, which aims to supplement students’ private medical aid or insurance schemes in the event of UCT-related accidental injury. Participation is compulsory and the premium is included in the academic fee.
    The maximum benefits are:
    Funeral Expenses: R10 000;
    Medical expenses: R8 000 or R25 000 where the student is involved in an official field trip for academic purposes. In both instances the first R100 of any claim is borne by the claimant
    Physiotherapy at the UCT Sports Injuries Clinic: R700.
    Cover is effective from 48 hours prior to the start of term and expires 48 hours after the close of term. Cover includes any sporting, cultural or academic activity under the auspices of the University outside this period. For example: The policy covers a student who is required to participate in a sports tour, (provided the student is a member of a specific club), attend a conference or undertake academic work during the vacation in connection with his/her academic course, such as fieldwork or an engineering workshop practice.
    Winter sports, mountaineering with the use of ropes, hang-gliding and motor-cycling are included (but excluding racing) provided the student is a member of the specific UCT club.
    Please note:
    This is not a medical aid scheme, but is designed as a contingency measure against unanticipated medical expenses arising out of personal injury resulting from UCT-related accidental injury.
    Students are expected to have adequate private medical aid or insurance cover, and this cover should NOT be used instead of a medical savings account, nor where an individual has elected to not cover day to day medical costs
    The cover is not adequate, on its own, in many cases. Students are expected to seek advice at the UCT Sports Injuries Clinic or the UCT Student Health Service in order to contain costs as much as possible.
    Students are liable for all expenses incurred even though the University administers the process whereby students are able to claim for those medical expenses which fall within the rules of the policy. They will face prosecution by medical practitioners e.g. hospitals, doctors if they fail to pay for all expenses incurred.
    Enquiries/claims: Medical Administrator, UCT Student Wellness Service, 28 Rhodes Avenue, Mowbray, 7700 Tel.: 650 1020/1022
    The following exclusions apply:
    Events consequent upon:
    war, invasions, act of foreign enemy;
    engaging in active military service;
    suicide or needless exposure to danger (except in an attempt to save human life);
    air travel other than as a passenger;
    underground mining, tunnelling or related activities;
    contributed to or caused by any pre-existing physical defect or infirmity;
    as a result of the influence of alcohol, drugs or narcotics upon the insured person (unless administered by a member of the medical profession);
    criminal acts;
    whilst on any maritime rig, platform or similar structure unless on University business;
    infection with HIV or AIDS or ARC or any related condition;
    pregnancy or childbirth;
    racing of any kind (other that on foot or under sail), professional sports, parachuting, sky-diving, mountaineering necessitating the use of ropes or guides and/or hang-gliding unless the insured person belongs to a specific club;
    physiotherapy costs unless following an accident and prescribed by a qualified medical practitioner.
    Additional Rules
    Notification of injury and intention to claim must be submitted within seven days of the injury being sustained, i.e. a Claim Form is to be correctly completed at either the UCT Sports Injuries Clinic (UCT Sports Centre) or the UCT Student Health Service (Rhodes Avenue, Mowbray, 7700). Should this be impossible, the Medical Administrator must be informed by phone: 650 1020/1022.
    Receipted invoices must be submitted to the Medical Administrator, Student Health Service, 28 Rhodes Avenue, Mowbray, 7700.
    Claims must be lodged within one month of injury date, unless the attending doctor certifies that continuing treatment is necessary and is a result of the original accident.
    Only sporting activities which fall under the auspices of the University are covered by the policy.
    A student, playing for a non-University club, a provincial or national team is not covered. SATISU representative teams function under the auspices of South African universities and UCT participants are, therefore covered.
    Other insurance
    The University provides no cover for personal possessions, including motor vehicles, even when a student may be involved in compulsory academic activity.
    Students in residence should provide their own insurance of all personal possessions. The University does not accept liability for any personal items that may be stolen or damaged.
