In the video, A/Prof Dicker explains that most practitioners in Australia have medical indemnity insurance covering procedural and non-procedural work.
“Most companies have very different definitions of what they think you should be insured for,” says A/Prof Dicker.
“Some companies have specific categories for skin cancer doctors and these can be cheaper.”
The most important thing is to ensure you’re insured for what you do. A/Prof Dicker recommends writing down the types of procedures you do and asking your insurer “am I covered for this?” on an annual basis.
Your indemnity insurance can be adjusted depending on whether you practise full-time in skin cancer or part-time in general practice, and so on.
