Insurance Solutions for Infection Prevention and Control Practitioners

Health Professionals Insurance

Health Professionals Insurance isn’t just necessary for nurses and doctors. As a Infection Prevention & Control Practitioner, you are an important part of the Australian healthcare system – so it’s paramount that you are sufficiently protected when it comes to the risks and consequences of your role.

Why do I need Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Health Professionals Insurance can help. Our IPCP Insurance policy provides you with the coverage you need, at great competitive rates. Don’t just buy insurance – as a specialist medical industry insurance provider with over 15 years of experience, we have strong relationships with some of Australia’s most trusted insurers which has allowed us to create a unique policy that actually covers what you need.

Why should I get personal Health Professionals Insurance cover?

It is important to remember that the cover you receive as an employee heavily depends on the type of insurance your employer has and their chosen provider. Talk to your employer about what you are actually covered for – you may find you are not afforded enough protection under your employer’s policy, and may not receive independent representation.

Holding your own Professional Indemnity Insurance policy ensures you are fully protected; and it has the extra feature of being attached to YOU personally, what you do and where you choose to work throughout your career in Infection Control and Prevention. Free yourself from one of life’s extra stresses by knowing that you’re fully covered, regardless of where you are working.

Always read the PDS to find out if this policy is right for you – and remember, we are healthcare insurance experts and always happy to answer your questions. Simply call 1800 177 163 and have a chat with us.

I would definitely recommend them to my industry peers and colleagues.
