Changing from another Medical Defence Organisation

Many practitioners who switch to MIPS are surprised how easy the transition is. Nominating the correct retroactive date provides uninterrupted cover for previous years of practice and a membership quote will help you to make an informed decision. In most cases, if you cancel your cover with your existing indemnity organisation you will receive a refund for a portion of the unused indemnity for the period of insurance (typically a calendar year or financial year).

Contact us with any questions about membership on 1800 061 113 or


Insurance cover is subject to the terms, conditions, and exclusions of the policy. The information provided is general advice only and does not consider your personal circumstances or needs. You should review the Member Handbook Combined PDS and FSG and/or contact MIPS on 1800 061 113, before making a decision. Information is current as at the date published.


Our fees are calculated using a model which reflects each member’s risk exposure from current and past practice.
