Emergency ambulance cover available for all CPSU NSW members

In uncertain times, it is good to know your union has your back.

As COVID-19 spreads throughout the country, the PSA/CPSU NSW has arranged temporary emergency ambulance cover for all eligible members.

If members are hit by injury or sickness, for whatever reason, for the next three months they will get emergency transport to the nearest available hospital equipped to deal with their condition, all without the nasty bill at the end.

The coverage is part of the union’s reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the virus hit our workplaces, the PSA/CPSU NSW went straight to the Government to ensure members have access to Special Leave during the crisis. The Member Support Centre is also operating for longer hours.

We are also liaising with the Government to ensure the safety of those essential workers who can’t stay home.

Ambulance cover is for eligible members of the PSA/CPSU NSW who have no other access to coverage through private health insurance or other bodies. As always, our members also have free journey insurance for travelling to and from work, free personal injury insurance, family insurance for $11 per year for the whole household, and a host of shopping discounts.
