Establishing the policy
This insurance policy requires a minimum take up from our members to be able to be established, so we are calling for Expressions of Interest of being covered by this insurance policy. As long as we meet the minimum numbers required (120 members), the policy will be enacted and interested members will be required to pay the premium to enter into the program.
Indicative per member cost
- $55 to $90 a year (depending on uptake)
- If we achieve 200 members in the program, the cost will be $55 per member
Note: You must be a financial member of ANZCP and a Registered Paramedic to access this insurance program.
