Asteron's Recovery Stand Alone is voted top Trauma product by AFR



Our Asteron Lifeguard® Recovery Stand Alone product has recently taken out the top prize in the Australian Financial Review Smart Investor Blue Ribbon Awards, in the trauma insurance category.

This brings the number of awards our Asteron Lifeguard® product suite has won, since launching a little more than a year ago, to eight!

The AFR Smart Investor Blue Ribbon Award is a great accolade for an excellent product, which balances features and price to give you and your family financial protection.

Recovery Stand Alone works by paying a lump sum upon diagnosis of one of a range of serious medical conditions. This money can be used to help reduce debt, fund recovery, pay medical expenses, and fund more relaxation time.

Asteron Lifeguard® Recovery policies cover 39 medical conditions including cancer, heart attack and stroke, and 9 partial payment conditions. More information about the conditions and procedures (including definitions) can be found in the current Asteron Lifeguard Product Disclosure Statement.

Cover for the whole family

You can cover the whole family with Asteron Lifeguard® Recovery policies.

When a parent takes out an Asteron Lifeguard® Recovery policy, each eligible child gets $10,000 of Child Cover premium-free. And additional cover is inexpensive at $1 per month per $10,000 sum insured.

Applying for Child Cover is easy, with a simple 5 question application form.
