Medical Indemnity Insurance for Health Care Professionals and Medical Establishments.
Medical indemnity insurance provides defence and indemnity in respect of allegations of medical negligence, often resulting from injury, death or mental anguish.
What is Medical Indemnity Insurance?
Medical indemnity insurance (or medical malpractice insurance) covers errors or omissions in the course of your professional duties as a medical professional. It is different from professional indemnity, which often exclude bodily injury. Medical indemnity insurance not only covers negligent medical advice or care, but importantly extends to cover the injury that can result. Medical indemnity insurance is often a claims made policy. This means the medical indemnity insurance must be in place at the time the claim is made. Claims can result from allegations negligent medical advice, negligent medical care, neglect, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose and mental destress.
