Insurance Opt Out

Opting out of PAA Indemnity Insurance

Eligible PAA members have exclusive access through their membership to comprehensive and cost-effective Professional Indemnity, Public & Products Liability insurance. This policy is available to active Graduate Level 1, Mat and Full members of the PAA as part of your membership, allowing you to renew and automatically receive insurance throughout the year with the two transactions aligned into one.

More information on PAA member’s Indemnity Insurance.

However, your circumstances might be such that you prefer to arrange your insurance through another professional association (e.g. Physiotherapists) or by using an alternative insurance solution.

Don’t worry: There is an opt-out facility for members who do not wish, or aren’t able, to participate in the PAA members’ insurance program. Simply look for the opt out checkbox whilst completing the new member application form or renewing your membership.

Want to opt back in at a later date?

If you would like to take advantage of the PAA member insurance program when your current insurance is due, simply log in to your PAA member page and add the insurance back into your membership to obtain cover immediately.

You will then be invoiced, pro rata, for the remainder of your current membership and your insurance will be aligned to your membership at your next renewal.

Evidence of insurance required

The PAA requires all Mat and Full members to hold Professional Indemnity insurance and Public Liability insurance plus Product/goods sold and supplied insurance.

If you choose to opt out of the PAA members’ insurance, you will be prompted to supply evidence that you have arranged sufficient cover elsewhere.

For PAA membership and Health Fund eligibility the policy must show:

  • coverage for Pilates specifically listed
  • the members name as on PAA membership
  • the dates of coverage
  • Graduate Level 1 and above – minimum cover for Indemnity insurance is $2,000,000 per claim.
