Midwife Professional Indemnity Scheme Level 2 Commonwealth Contribution (L2 Claims Scheme)

We may reimburse claim costs incurred for midwife professional indemnity claims. The L2 Claims Scheme is for claims above $2 million.

Under this scheme, the government reimburses 100% of eligible claim cost incurred. This is for claims above the $2 million threshold.

Applications can only be made against an eligible midwife that meet the criteria for a claim.

A claim may be eligible under the scheme, if it:

  • relates to an incident that occurs in the course of, or in connection with, the practice of an eligible midwife
  • has been certified as a qualifying claim
  • relates to an incident that occurred on or after 1 July 2010
  • exceeds the eligible midwife’s insurance contract.

If you have an eligible claim, read about how to apply for payment under the L2 Claims Scheme.
