Applying for the Exceptional Claims Scheme (ECS)

Practitioners do not have to apply or pay for ECS cover. They are automatically covered if they meet the eligibility criteria.

Applying for the ECS

The ECS automatically covers practitioners if they meet the eligibility criteria.

Eligible practitioners (or their representative or insurer) can apply for an ECS payment for eligible claims made against them.

Paying for ECS cover

Practitioners do not need to pay premiums or other contributions to receive ECS cover. The Australian Government fully funds the ECS.
