Insurance options from Insurance House

PACFA has arranged two very attractive insurance options for members via Insurance House.

PACFA Members and members of PACFA Member Associations can access a combined professional indemnity and public liability policy, with a high level of cover, at very affordable rates. There are two options: the PACFA Master Insurance Policy and the Individual Insurance Policy.

While PACFA does not endorse any particular insurance product, PACFA has arranged these packages so that members can have access to affordable insurance. It is each practitioner’s responsibility to arrange their insurance and to determine the policy that best meets their needs.

Option 1 – PACFA Master Insurance Policy

Option 1 is a Master Insurance Policy with Insurance House for both practitioners and educators.

* The Master Insurance Policy is available to Individual PACFA Members ONLY.
** The Master Policy option is one of the most affordable insurance policies available which provides a very high level of cover for a very low premium.


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.

Every member who takes up the Master policy has a limit of up to $20,000,000 cover for both professional indemnity and public liability cover. FREE cover under the PACFA Master Policy is provided to counselling and psychotherapy students who are Student Members of PACFA.

For information on how to take up the Master Insurance Policy, see the PACFA website.

Option 2: Individual Insurance Policy

Option 2 is an Individual Insurance Policy with Insurance House for both practitioners and educators.

* This policy is available to Individual PACFA Members and members of Member Associations.

The level of cover available is between $1,000,000 and $20,000,000 for Professional Indemnity, and between $10,000,000 and $20,000,000 for Public Liability cover, depending on the level of cover you select. The policy includes access to 1 hour of free legal advice per year via the Insurance House advice line, and unlimited run-off cover when you retire.

For information on how to take up the individual insurance option, see the PACFA website.

Switching to one of the new insurance options

Practitioners can switch to Insurance House insurance if you think their insurance offers will meet your insurance needs. You can take up one of the new insurance offers:

• when joining PACFA or a PACFA Member Association for the first time;
• when your current insurance expires; or
• at any time when you decide you are ready to switch.
