iCare confirms that claims related to COVID-19 won't impact premiums.
iCare have confirmed that they will exclude COVID-19 claims and COVID-19 vaccination claims from the individual claims experience of Nominal Insurer policy holders to protect any individual employer or industries from disproportionately being impacted by COVID-19.

They have also updated their information on workers who have suffered an adverse reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine. iCare stated that in certain circumstances an adverse reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine may be covered under workers compensation. To be covered, it needs to be satisfied that:
- The vaccine injury arose out of, or in the course of, the worker’s employment; and
- The worker’s employment was a substantial contributing factor to the vaccine injury or was the main contributing factor to a disease injury; or
- In the case of a heart attack or stroke injury, the nature of the employment was a relevant factor in increasing the risk of the injury.
