Indemnity cover provided by MIPS exceeds the requirements for registered healthcare practitioners set by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). MIPS is one of four medical defence organisations that is an authorised provided of medical indemnity insurance in Australia.

If you are a healthcare practitioner and you acquire MIPS membership, your membership will meet your AHPRA indemnity requirements.

MIPS has remained a strong and independent mutual, even through the changes in the industry in 2003 (see our history). Our indemnity is comprehensive and with additional member benefits such as MIPS Protections, we further protect our members.

Members who need assistance with an AHPRA or other enquiry, may seek assistance from a MIPS clinico-legal adviser. Please contact us on 1800 061 113 or info@mips.com.au

What is professional indemnity insurance?

MIPS' indemnity insurance policy provides cover for any acts, errors or omissions you make in providing healthcare. This means that should there be a complaint, claim, investigation or legal action made against you, then you can notify MIPS. This includes being sued (ie litigation). Once notified MIPS may appoint legal representation. The legal defence costs and any further costs such as damages you are required to pay due to a settlement or court order are paid by MIPS provided they fall within the scope of the policy.
