There is a raft of complex legislation which is designed to protect registered healthcare practitioners (and patient’s rights to seek compensation when mistakes occur). Some of the legislation that underpins medical indemnity in Australia includes:
- The Medical Indemnity (Prudential Supervision and Products Standards) Act 2003.
- ROCS – Run-Off Cover Scheme
- HCCS – High Cost Claims Scheme
- ECS – Exception Claims Scheme
PSS – Premium Support Scheme
