Health and wellbeing

MIPS is committed to supporting members through their professional and personal challenges by providing resources, advice and support from experienced practitioners.

There are many factors that influence health and wellbeing, including nutrition, physical activity, sleep, coping with stress, financial stability, good relationships and career success.

Health and wellbeing is not just about how we feel but also affects the way we function and participate in the community. Increasing pressures to work longer hours, balance work and personal demands and stressful work environments directly impact the way you provide healthcare. Additionally, healthcare practitioners have a professional obligation to maintain their health to ensure they perform optimally when treating patients.

A healthy and balanced life is fundamental to providing good healthcare.

MIPS has partnered with Australian Unity provide member access to the tools and resources of My Wellness and a discount offer for private health insurance + extras to help maintain your health and wellbeing.

Conduct a detailed online health check and access 6 to 10 week nutritional, physical or mental health programs.

Why is health insurance important?

The key purpose of health insurance is to help you pay for the healthcare you need. It is designed to protect you and your family financially not only in the event of an unexpected serious illness or injury but also in maintaining health. Individuals with insurance are likely to get routine and preventive care.

Taking out private health insurance can also help avoid the Medicare Levy Surcharge for those above the income threshold or having to pay a lifetime health cover loading once you have turned 30.
