Insurance for PAA Certified Pedorthists
Exclusive Insurance for PAA Certified Members
Pedorthic Association of Australia recognises the importance of offering its certified members insurance policies that meet the requirements to practice in Australia. This is why we’ve partnered with BMS to offer members exclusive access to discounted insurance coverage. This is just one of the many advantages of being a member.
Professional Indemnity, Public and Products Liability for Pedorthists
Professional Indemnity Insurance protects you against allegations or claims of financial loss due to injury or damages that have resulted from a negligent act, error, omission, malpractice or breach of duty that has arisen out of your professional capacity as a pedorthist.
Public Liability Insurance provides cover for bodily injury or property damage to a third party that occurs while conducting your professional activities. This is primarily a legal defence costs cover but also covers settlement costs in the event that you are found to be liable and/or negligent in causing the injury or property damage.
Products Liability Insurance covers you for actual or alleged bodily injury or property damage to a third party arising through use of a product sold, supplied, or manufactured by you.
How to access this exclusive cover
As long as your PAA membership is active, you can purchase cover at any time throughout the year. You can buy cover by contacting BMS directly on 1800 940 763 or email@example.com.
Remember to quote your PAA Member and Certification Number to access the exclusive rates.
