Why Professional Indemnity insurance for Allied Health professionals?

As a health professional, if one of your clients suffers an injury or loses money as a result of your advice or treatment, there is a chance they will take legal action against you. It’s an unfortunate reality that just one small mistake, error of judgement, injury or perceived piece of bad advice can lead to a claim against your business or against you personally – and potentially cost you both professionally and financially. Aon arranges Professional Indemnity insurance which has been designed to cover health professionals' common risks, and with cover starting from as little as $211.20 (inc GST)2 per year, it's a small price to pay to help protect your business and your livelihood.
