Overseas Cover

Providing healthcare whilst overseas.

Your Professional Indemnity Insurance Policy includes cover arising from your provision of healthcare services outside of Australia in the following circumstances:

  • The period for which you require cover for your provision of healthcare services outside of Australia will not exceed six months in any policy period
  • You have access to indemnity for claims against you from another source such as the hospital, government or your employer; or
  • You are a trainee in a healthcare training program; or
  • The healthcare services will involve accompanying Australian sporting or cultural groups anywhere in the world (including the United States or where US jurisdiction applies) and the healthcare services provided will be restricted to members of that group who are Australian residents; or
  • The healthcare services will be provided as a volunteer with a charitable
    organisation; or
  • The healthcare services will involve the undertaking of disaster relief work.
     

In these circumstances you do not need to contact us to seek an extension of cover. Where the above circumstances do not apply, you can apply for an extension of cover under your Policy by completing the Overseas Cover Request form via the Member Online Services section of our website mdanational.com.au or by writing to us. You should include the nature of healthcare services you will provide overseas, the period for which you require the cover, details of the country(ies) in which the practice will be undertaken, any billings or income (in AUD) you will generate from this work and whether you will have access to local indemnity from any other source.
