Professional Indemnity Insurance

The AEA proudly provides Professional Indemnity Insurance to all members who are registered Paramedics. Registration of the Paramedic profession occurred on the 1st December 2018; with it comes the requirement for all paramedics Australia-wide to have Professional Indemnity Insurance. SAAS provides insurance for the period of time staff are on duty, with the onus on individuals to secure insurance outside of the employment context.

Our group policy provides cover for “the rendering of or failure to render first aid and assistance in an emergency situation or accident by an Insured outside the normal course of their employment, except where such Insured is engaged in a professional capacity by another person or entity.
