Pharmacist Professional Indemnity

Insurance Solutions for Pharmacists

As a Pharmacist, you are at the frontline of Australia’s Healthcare system, and it’s absolutely key that you’re protected as best as you can be from the dangers and risks that you face in your profession. Pharmacist Professional Indemnity insurance helps you to protect yourself against those risks.

Why do I need Pharmacist Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Health Professionals Insurance can help. Our Pharmacist Professional Indemnity 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 Pharmacist Professional Indemnity cover?

It is important to remember that the cover you receive as an employee heavily depends on the type of Pharmacist Professional Indemnity 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 Pharmacist 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 Pharmacy. 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 industry insurance experts and always happy to answer your questions. Simply call 1800 177 163 and have a chat with us.
