Medical indemnity insurance in Australia

Medical indemnity insurance is designed to protect both the doctor and the patient in cases where there are adverse incidents as a result of medical care.

Medical indemnity cover is a requirement of medical registration in Australia.

The peak body in medical indemnity is the Medical Indemnity Insurance Association of Australia (MIIAA), which represents 5 specialist insurers.

For more information see the Australian Government Department of Health DoctorConnect website.

The Australian Government has a support scheme in place designed to make medical indemnity cover more affordable for doctors and ensure the medical indemnity market remains sustainable.

For information about the Australian Government Medical Indemnity Package see the Department of Health and Ageing.
