AMA Submission on the First Principles Review of the Indemnity Insurance Fund (IIF) and each of the schemes that comprise the IIF
The AMA has lodged its submission to the First Principles review into the Indemnity Insurance Fund (IIF) and each of the schemes that comprise the IIF – known as the medical indemnity scheme. The AMA has strongly argued that any review of the schemes must have as a key outcome the long-term financial sustainability of the market for medical indemnity insurance and, through this, provide certainty to medical practitioners as to the adequacy and availability of ongoing cover. We have also argued that another key consideration in this review must be that these schemes are really a system to support compensation for patients, and that affordable indemnity insurance is directly related to affordable health care.
