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.
As a new arrangement, midwives may have many questions about the insurance available and the operation of the arrangement with the Federal Government.
We have prepared an Information Booklet to address the more commonly asked questions and a Questions and Answers document providing further detail about the Federal Government insurance Scheme for privately practising midwives.
If you have any specific questions not addressed by the Information Booklet or the Questions and Answers document please call our office on 1800 777 156.
