As per the Collective Agreement, Medical Residents are required to maintain Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) professional liability and malpractice coverage. Non-medical Residents are required to maintain appropriate professional liability and malpractice insurance acceptable to the Employer.
While the Collective Agreement stipulates that the employer is responsible for paying all but the lesser amount of 25% or $625.00 of Residents’ CMPA fees, CMPA is no longer accepting third party payments as of June 2020. This means that, as of July 2020, Residents will need to pay CMPA directly, and then be reimbursed by Shared Health. Please see this March 22, 2020 notice from the PGME Office explaining these changes.
For reimbursement from Shared Health, please send receipts to: PMAO-Residents@sharedhealthmb.ca
