Medicare Malpractice

  • Insurer:  Newline Australia Insurance Pty Ltd
  • Policy No:  AUS1893410SA

This policy serves to cover the University's staff and students for possible medical negligence exposure (excluding clinical trials which are insured under a separate Clinical Trials policy).

This policy will also provide cover when the University's staff and students are providing a professional service on behalf of UniSA that could possibly result in death or bodily injury.

We must hold Medical Malpractice insurance because our Public Liability and Professional Indemnity policies have exclusions relating to bodily injury. If Medical Malpractice Insurance is required, you must have either a signed Placement Agreement (PDF 159KB) or Affiliation Agreement with the Host organisation, or confirmation of cover for your Research Project from the Insurance Office.
