Opt in to the Bonded Medical Program is voluntary. Eligible existing participants of the MRBS Scheme can choose to opt in to the Program provided they have completed their course of study in medicine and are not subject to s19ABA of the Act (i.e. a Medicare Ban). The decision to opt in will depend on the participant’s assessment of the benefits of the Program compared to their existing contract. Participants are encouraged to seek independent legal advice prior to making a decision to opt in. Participants who choose not to opt in will remain in the MRBS Scheme and subject to the requirements of their existing contract.
