Online video & messaging consultations?
Yes - We've got you covered!
We would like to confirm to all our therapists that the our combined PI/PL insurance policies cover you for online video (telehealth) and messaging type consultations*. During pandemics such as the COVID-19 outbreak these communications channels become even more important in maintaining treatment continuity for our clients and also for our therapists to support some business activity.
MyPhysioRehab, Skype, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, FaceTime etc. are examples of applications that you can use to continue to provide continuity.
Our policies provide cover for non-face to face consultations where it is practical, feasible and safe to do so for the Professional Services being administered. Where the Insureds operate under the governance/guidance of a professional body then it is imperative the Insureds continue to act in accordance with the direction provided by the professional body. Full policy terms and conditions apply.
'The Therapysure policy wording also provides worldwide Territorial cover meaning there are no restrictions in the Policy on where in the world you practice. There are however Jurisdictional restrictions which apply meaning that the Policy will only respond to any Claim that is first brought against you in an Australian/New Zealand court.
In terms of training, workshops, and lecturing: 'Yes, the Therapysure policy provides cover for training/lecturing in modalities that you are suitably qualified in'.
