Medical Indemnity for insurers
Medical Indemnity legislation strengthens the availability of medical services in Australia.
The Medical Indemnity Act 2002 provides financial assistance to help keep Medical Indemnity insurance premiums affordable for medical practitioners.
You can read the Medical Indemnity Act 2002 on the Federal Register of Legislation website.
Medical Defence Organisations (MDOs) and Medical Indemnity Insurers (MIIs) can make claims under Medical Indemnity Schemes we administer.
MDOs and MIIs must be incorporated in Australia to participate.
