Leave of Absence
If you are taking a break from practicing as a midwife, it’s beneficial to change your membership status to Inactive: your fees with both the AOM and CMO will be reduced; and costs to the health-care system are reduced, too, as you do not need liability insurance coverage on leave.
A member who is Inactive is still a registered, voting member of the AOM and
- can still vote at the Annual General Meeting;
- will receive updates about contracts and negotiations;
- will have access to AOM On Call, our confidential member support line; and
- will remain enrolled in the AOM Benefits Trust program (i.e., health, dental, disability, life insurance etc.) for up to 12 months contingent upon approval from the insurer and payment of monthly premiums.
