NZSTA recommends all members who practice in Aotearoa New Zealand, consider professional indemnity insurance. Most large employers include indemnity cover directly; however, if you are in private practice, you may want your own plan.
One option is QBE’s ‘Health Professionals Insurance Plan’, which may be right for you.
A $60.00 administration fee is included in the amounts stated on the application form.
