Medical Indemnity Insurance - Practice

Medical practices are diversifying to provide a number of different medical services. This variation in business activity, along with other factors like the practice company structure, can create heightened liability risks to the business that are not covered by an individual doctor’s Medical Indemnity Insurance policy.

Practice Medical Indemnity Insurance is designed to minimise gaps in cover to safeguard and create financial stability for the future of your practice.

Medical Indemnity Insurance provides protection for medical practices and companies as distinct from individual practitioners Medical Indemnity policies that doctors have in place.  

Medical Indemnity Insurance is necessary to cover your medical practice for;

  • Claims for compensation and complaints made against them and the costs to defend these claims
  • Cover for non-medical employees who are not legally required to take out their own indemnity policy e.g. receptionist, practice manager, nurse etc.
  • Vicarious liability for the acts of employed doctors, contractors or consultants of the practice i.e. health professionals, locums

With Medical Indemnity cover in place, your practice will be in a position to mitigate significant risk exposures that if left uninsured, could threaten the financial viability of your practice.

Whether you’re a suburban Medical Practice, or a large corporate employing a significant number of doctors, we can help tailor a Medical Indemnity arrangement for your practice.
