ANZACATA is partnered with BMS to offer the ANZACATA Member Insurance program*. The program offers a comprehensive Professional Indemnity Insurance policy to meet your professional needs, and of course give you peace of mind.
You may face situations where your patients look to hold you responsible for injuries they believe are due to your professional services. This is where Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance can step in. PI insurance protects you by ensuring that your legal defence is coordinated and paid for if a claim is made against you. Your PI insurance also covers the cost of patient compensation or damages.
Refer to the Policy Wording for full policy inclusions and exclusions accessed via the ANZACATA member portal in the insurance section.
If a client slipped or fell in your studio you could face a public liability claim. Public Liability insurance may support you in the event a client becomes injured from an accident in your premises like the scenario described. Product Liability insurance can help in the event the use of a product you sell, supply, or manufacture causes injury to a client.
Please note that Public and Products Liability cover is an optional cover for New Zealand members. To add this cover to your policy, please speak to a BMS broker.
If you currently hold a Professional Indemnity and Public & Products Liability policy with BMS, additional cover is available to you. This includes:
