Why do Allied Health Professionals need it?

Professional Indemnity Insurance provides essential financial protection for Allied Health Professionals for claims made against them in carrying out their professional services or treatments. Allied Health Professionals generally require a Professional Indemnity policy to comply with professional association requirements, professional standards legislation and to meet the requirements of many clients. 

A Professional Indemnity policy will cover you and your business in the event that you are faced with the risk of legal action as a result of a claim made against you.

It means in the event policyholders are sued for professional negligence, they are covered for their legal costs and for any damages awarded as a result of the claim – no matter whether it’s proven or not.

It’s an especially important insurance for people working in the health industries, who are frequently exposed to potential legal action. For instance, each day, practitioners risk patients suffering an injury while under their care, or even face the possibility of conflicts of interest arising.

Public and Product Liability Insurance covers Allied Health Professionals for their legal liability in the event of personal injury or damage to the property of others during the course of normal business operations or as a result of a product defect. If your business/practice requires your customers or members of the public to visit your home or business, or if you visit their premises, it is important to consider taking out both a Professional Indemnity policy as well as a Public Liability policy to ensure you have a broad level of protection.

  • Aged and/or Disability Care Worker

3 things to consider when purchasing a Professional Indemnity and Public Liability policy:

Find an insurer that:

  2. Understands the coverage needs of Allied Health Professionals.
  3. Assists you in familarising yourself with the services or procedures that are not covered by your insurer.
