Does your membership classification reflect your practice?

Reading time:

Your membership classification determines the extent your practice is covered and should be reviewed regularly to ensure it accurately reflects the practice you are undertaking. For example, notifying MIPS as soon as you obtain specialist registration or you become aware your estimated gross private billings exceed your current level of cover.

Before we issue your invitation to renew membership for 2021/2022 now is a good time to review your membership classification. Update your details by logging in to My Membership or completing the Membership Classification Update If you have any queries, contact us info@mips.com.au or 1800 061 113.

Retiring or no longer practising in Australia?

When you cease practice in Australia, 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 and cost of run-off cover will depend on your individual circumstances. Medical healthcare practitioners may be eligible for free run-off cover for their past practice in Australia if they meet eligibility criteria for the Run Off Cover Scheme (ROCS)

Complete the Ceasing Practice in Australia form when you cease practice in Australia. Your membership details will be updated to run off cover and any refund applicable will be advised.

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