Journey Insurance - At No Extra Cost

Your workday isn’t always spent in an office. Because of this, Professional Pharmacists Australia membership also means you automatically qualify for the Professionals Australia Journey Insurance policy. This provides cover for members who suffer injuries while travelling to and from work. Rebates are provided when Workers’ Compensation, the Traffic Accidents Act or an equivalent do not meet a claim.
