Master Insurance Policy

PACFA has negotiated a discounted Master Insurance Policy with Insurance House for both Registered Practitioners and Educators. The policy is available to individual members of PACFA at a rate that is around 30% cheaper than the current industry standard.

The Master Insurance Policy provides $20,000,000 of professional indemnity cover, $20,000,000 of public and products liability, access to 1 hour of free legal advice per year via the Insurance House advice line, and unlimited run-off cover when you retire.

The cost of the Master Policy includes GST, stamp duty (not applicable in ACT) , and admin fee. New premiums are applied pro rata depending on when you purchase the insurance throughout the year.

New members can get up to six weeks free insurance and membership if joining from mid-May.

All charges are outlined in the table below:
