GPs

GPs are the beating heart of medical care in Australia and MIPS has thousands of GP members.

If you are like many GPs and work in a small private practice you may like to take advantage of both MIPS’ accredited risk education and practice entity policy, which includes GP practice insurance.

GPs have a variety of talents, so we have a variety of different categories to account for GPs who have a speciality in amongst their day to day practice (eg minor cosmetics, anaesthetics, obstetrics). Additionally, because practice between GPs can vary considerably, GPs are divided into procedural and non-procedural so you pay a membership fee commensurate with your risk exposure.

There are three categories for GP members:

  • GP non procedural
  • GP procedural
  • GP procedural  including anaesthetics and/or obstetrics

Additionally you can request an endorsement for minor cosmetics or other procedures for which you hold appropriate training and qualifications.

See how to select a category or the Membership Benefits Handbook for category information.

Note: Skin flaps and grafts and shared antenatal care are permitted under GP categories within limits. See the Membership Benefits Handbook for details.

 

Practice entity policy

The MIPS Members’ Practice Entity Policy is a popular addition for GPs operating their own small private practice. MIPS GP practice insurance was specially designed to support practitioners who own and operate their own practice independently or with a small number of other practitioners. This is an automatic benefit of membership – you do not need to apply for it separately and there is no additional cost.

Risk education

Once you are outside of the hospital system, accumulating your CPD points becomes more difficult, which is why so many of our GP members attended our risk education workshops each year, which are accredited by the RACGP. You can also participate in risk education webinars and complete online units to earn CPD points.

Currently, all of MIPS’ risk education workshops, webinars and online units that are suitable for medical practitioners are accredited by the RACGP under category 2 in the RACGP’s QI & CPD program.
