Discover a smarter way to insure your future with NobleOak’s award-winning Trauma Insurance.
NobleOak’s Premium Life Direct products include comprehensive Trauma Insurance cover of up to $2,000,000. This cover pays a lump sum benefit on the diagnosis of one of the 38 listed medical conditions under NobleOak Trauma cover. Trauma Insurance is available as an optional extra with Life Insurance or stand-alone cover.
Where Trauma Insurance is taken with Life Insurance, any claim paid will reduce the remaining Life Insurance cover amount by the amount of the Trauma Benefit paid. For stand-alone Trauma Insurance, any claim paid will have no impact on any other insurance cover you hold with NobleOak.

We are the only Life Insurer to have won a Canstar award for ‘Outstanding Value – Direct Life Insurance’ four years running, as well as a number of other product and service awards in 2019 from organisations such as Finder, Feefo, Plan for Life and Mozo.
No Surprises Cover
We offer fully underwritten Trauma Insurance cover. This means we take the time to get to know you upfront by asking health and lifestyle questions. This results in cover that is tailored to you, providing you and your loved ones with greater certainty in the event of a claim.
Trauma Insurance Features
To help protect you against inflation, your Trauma cover sum insured will increase each year using the Consumer Price Index. Your premiums will be adjusted accordingly with these increases.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Trauma Insurance?
Trauma Insurance, also referred to as Critical Illness Cover, is one of several Life Insurance products available at NobleOak. It provides a one-off payment if you are diagnosed with one of the 38 serious medical conditions listed under NobleOak’s Trauma Cover (the listed medical conditions and their definitions are contained in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS)). This payment can help to ease financial pressures and allow you to take time away from work and focus on your recovery.
What conditions does Trauma Insurance cover?
Four of the main listed conditions accounting for up to 90% of Trauma claims are Cancer, Heart Attack, Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery and Stroke. NobleOak Trauma Insurance also provides cover for another 34 medical conditions such as Major Brain Injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Blindness, Paraplegia and Dementia.
Our PDS contains details of the listed medical conditions (known as Trauma Events) and their definitions. A medical condition suffered must meet the medical definition in the relevant PDS for cover to be provided. Our PDS also contains policy conditions, waiting periods and applicable exclusions.
Is Trauma Insurance tax deductable?
Trauma Insurance payments are not considered to be income replacement and the premiums payable are generally not tax-deductible according to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). However, payments received through your policy will generally be tax-free. Trauma Benefit payments are also generally exempt from capital gains tax if paid to the policy holder or a specified relative.
Am I eligible to receive Trauma Insurance in Australia?
At NobleOak you can apply for cover providing you are an Australian resident and aged between 18 and 59. Our cover is priced using stepped premiums which means your premiums will increase annually in accordance with your age. Eligibility for cover is also subject to an underwriting process.
Can I apply for Life and Trauma Insurance together?
NobleOak’s comprehensive cover gives you the option to add Trauma to an existing Life Insurance policy. In doing so, any approved claim for Trauma will lower the Life Insurance cover by the sum of the Trauma payment. If you apply for and obtain stand-alone Trauma Insurance, any claim paid will not affect the sum insured under your Life Insurance policy.
