Abstract:

Since 2002, the Australian Government has developed a package of measures aimed at securing a stable, safe and affordable medical indemnity insurance industry, for the benefit of health care professionals and their patients. For the purpose of the Act, health care professionals include medical practitioners, nurses, midwives, pharmacists, dentists, optometrists and other health care providers required to be licensed or registered in relation to the provision of health care by a state or territory. The Government introduced the Act to ensure the stability of medical indemnity insurers and the adequacy of the insurance offered to health care professionals.

The purpose of this paper is to outline possible amendments to the prudential and product standards of the Medical Indemnity (Prudential Supervision and Product Standards) Act 2003 (the Act).
