Role

The MIIAA exists to:

  • Act as the peak consultative group for the medical indemnity insurance sector in Australia.
  • Provide a forum for the open exchange of ideas, information and views on issues of common interest for the medical indemnity industry.
  • Be a point of contact for and to represent the MIIAA’s members, their insureds and the medical indemnity industry, in all matters involving contact with governments at all levels, community decision makers and the public.
  • Be a point of contact to liaise and work from an industry perspective with key stakeholders such as the AMA, Colleges, APRA, ASIC, ACCC and other relevant authorities.
  • Review, develop and promote appropriate industry standards and protocols.
  • Represent the common voice of the medical indemnity industry on issues of key and/or urgent concern.
  • Establish working parties and committees, as required, to review issues of urgent or industry concern.
  • Enhance the image of the medical indemnity industry.

The MIIAA is managed by a Board which is made up of Council and Board representatives of the association members together with their CEOs. Board members individually play an active role in the delivery of the MIIAA’s activities, particularly the relationships with the AMA and Colleges.

The Board meets at least on a quarterly basis and all recommendations made are considered and reviewed by the member organisations prior to agreement.
