As an HTA member you can source professional insurance from any source you can find, but the Association is known to three insurance brokers :  Arthur J Gallagher (formerly OAMPS), TherapySure and Fenton & Green.

The products offered by these brokers are directly comparable. Consequently, it is possible to provide members with an objective comparison of the insurer brokers in terms of relative cost and the ease of use and functionality of their respective websites. In those terms, TherapySure is the least cost and easiest to use for HTA members.

The Fenton & Green website is anything but user-friendly so if you select this broker you MUST follow these steps to negotiate it.

When you Register with them at http://www.fentongreen.com.au/allied-health-practitioners.php by providing your personal details you MUST select Allied Health Practitioner as the Industry you’re in.  If you select Psychotherapy/Counselling/Hypnotherapy you end up in a process designed for PACFA members with no option to specify the HTA as your Professional Association. 

Once you have registered, providing your name etc and selecting allied health practitioner as the industry, down the bottom of the page you can request a Quote.  Question 2 of the quotation form allows you to select which modalities you want covered. In Question 4 you need to select "other" in the box labelled Association and a new box opens up where you can fill in  HOLISTIC THERAPISTS AUSTRALIA.
