What you need to know about insurance cover.

Insurance cover and insurance payment has been separated from IASLT membership fees. This started the 1st of January 2021. Insurance cover is optional for members, depending on their needs. Provisional members who are completing 'Return to Full Membership' requirements will likely not have suitable insurance cover in place through another organisation or employer. Provisional members are advised to discuss their Insurance requirements with the IASLT recommended broker or another appropriate insurance broker to ensure that the required protection is in place for therapists during a period of supervised clinical practice.  In order for IASLT members insurance (fitness to practice and other full insurance cover) to be valid should a future claim arise all members must adhere to IASLT guidelines and standards of practice including all guidance issued in the context of COVID-19.
