Insurance for eligible midwives in private practice
On 1 July 2010 MIGA was appointed by the Federal Government as the sole provider of professional indemnity insurance to eligible privately practising midwives.
The Midwives Insurance Scheme supports eligible midwives in providing high quality midwifery services to Australian women as part of a collaborative team with doctors and other health professionals.
MIGA has been working with the Federal Government and key midwives groups on ways to change and improve some of the conditions that apply to the Midwives Insurance Scheme. Read the summary of changes here.
If you have any specific questions regarding the Scheme and the insurance available to midwives please call our office on 1800 777 156.
