Is your membership classification correct?

Are you covered for your practice?

Undertaking practice not covered under your membership classification (for example level of ‘private’ billings stated) may prejudice your rights to the benefits of membership including insurance cover in the event you require assistance. To ensure that you are appropriately covered, your membership classification should accurately reflect the healthcare practice you provide.

You need to advise MIPS, if your type of practice or location has changed, the amount of your ‘private’ billings or hours have increased or decreased, or you have ceased or begun particular elements of your practice. Your membership classification will be updated to reflect your healthcare practice and may impact the membership fee applicable.

Before we issue our renewal  invitations now is a good time to review and amend your membership classification details online by logging in to My Membership or you can complete the Membership Classification Update If you have any queries, please contact us info@mips.com.au or 1800 061 113. 


Membership Classification Update


Are you considering retiring or leaving Australia?

When you cease practice in Australia (temporarily or permanently), to ensure you are appropriately covered for any emerging claims from your prior practice in Australia, you are required to obtain run-off cover. The type of run-off cover will depend on your individual circumstances.

Once you have finalised your plans to cease practice in Australia, complete the Ceasing Practice in Australia form. Your membership classification will be updated and any refund applicable will be advised.

Further information regarding run-off cover can be found in our Frequently Asked Questions
