How to claim a Medical Indemnity Refund.
You need to submit an application to claim.
You must apply for a Medical Indemnity Refund using the approved Medical Indemnity Refund application form.
If you’re making a claim against several members or policy holders, you’ll need to make a separate application for each member or policy holder.
There’s a checklist on the Medical Indemnity Refund application to remind you of what we need to:
- verify your claim
- assess whether the claim is payable.
Send us the necessary supporting documents to prevent delays in assessing your application.
Read more about your right to privacy and how we collect and use your information.
Cost sharing arrangements apply if there’s an agreement between parties to share the costs or disbursements.
You need to take settlement and judgment costs into account in your claim.
Plaintiff costs are the legal costs for the person who has brought the action against the medical practitioner.
Under section 38 of the Medical Indemnity Act 2002 the Chief Executive Medicare may ask you for more information.
You can send us your application and supporting documents by post or email.
We’ll offset a Medical Indemnity refund application we get against claim payments.
