Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions commonly asked by ANZMH Members.

Is it mandatory for Mental Health Professionals to hold Insurance?

Professional Indemnity Insurance is a mandatory requirement for some mental health professions. The requirements are set by your respective governing board, so we recommend contacting them to find out what insurance you need and how much. While Professional Indemnity is the only insurance which is mandatory, it may not be enough on its own to protect your business from the range of risks you face, so it’s worth speaking to your broker to fully understand the range of risks you face and decide which other forms of cover you might need.

What should I do if I have not received my certificate of currency or renewal offer/documents? (ANZMH)

Please accept our apologies. At Aon we strive to deliver best in class service, so we are sorry to hear you have not received your documents. Please request your Certificate of Currency here or alternatively contact us on 1800 805 191 or [email protected] and we will look to send your documents as soon as possible.

Why do Mental Health Professionals need Public Liability insurance?

Public Liability is an important cover for any business that interacts with members of the public. One of your clients or a member of the public could fall and hurt themselves or damage their property on your premises. This could lead to them making a claim against your business, and you could be held liable. Even if you don’t operate out of a business premise, and only see patients in their homes, Public Liability should still be considered as any interaction with the public or your clients in person holds a level of liability risk.

What level of complimentary legal advice do I receive?

A total of 2 hours of complimentary legal advice is offered if you hold the Aon Health Combined Professional Indemnity, Public & Products Liability Policy. You can call the Legal Helpline up to a total of 2 hours in each policy year, per policy, for general legal advice relating to your practice. Legal advice relating to your policy is not included.2

The Legal Helpline is entirely confidential, and you'll be supported by a network of lawyers who work independently of Aon. This conversation will not impact the future cost of your insurance premium.
