    If you claim against your superannuation fund for a disability not work related, would you have to pay back Centrelink, Medicare and health fund for operations for an accident as would be the case if you won a claim against say a green slip insurance? In this instance it is not a compensation claim of any sort, just a personal accident leading to disability.

    Hi Kerrie, I'm not an expert on this but I have never heard of this happening before. Generally the purpose behind one party having to pay a compensation order which includes paying for the medical procedures and treatment etc is because they are at fault and its not fair that the state should have to bear the expense of their fault. In this case it is your money you are accessing, and your medical expenses are covered by medicare.
