Medical indemnity underinsurance

With the increases in property prices in recent years, the buildings owned by businesses are likely to be one of their most valuable assets. If a business fails to adequately insure its property, it could threaten the survival of the business and the loss of people’s livelihoods. We work with CPA Valuation Services to offer a free desktop indication which will give a status of whether your building is under/over or adequately insured.

Health and safety

We can approach our insurers with a view to providing retrospective cover, in order to ensure your past work is protected. Due to the statute of limitation, a patient has up to three years to make a claim, from the time they become aware of the error and then another three years from the point they intimate a claim. Therefore it is important you’re protected during this time regardless of if you are working or not.

Medical Indemnity Insurance FAQs

What does medical indemnity cover you for?

Medical indemnity insurance cover includes acts or omissions in the course of your professional duties. This can include injury, misdiagnosis, delays in referral, physical or mental harm to a patient. It doesn’t cover against incidents that occurred before the life of your policy.

Do you offer dental indemnity insurance?

Yes, our indemnity cover is available for dentists.

What is 'claims made'?

Put simply, claims made means your policy will respond to claims submitted whilst the policy is active. Your cover is issued with a retroactive date, which means the policy will provide protection for any treatment provided after this date. In most instances the retroactive date will be the date cover is first taken out with us. However, if you transfer your insurance to us from another provider and have previously been covered by a claims made policy, we can look to provide a retroactive date back to when you first took out this type of cover.

Can you cover me if I have had successful claims or disciplinary action brought against me in the past?

We have a range of insurers we use to source our products who will look at each professional on a case by case basis. They are open to reviewing those that have previous claims or disciplinary action. Terms and premiums can vary but we specialise in cases such as this and will work hard, on your behalf, to get you the best deal we can.

Do you provide medical indemnity insurance for radiographers?

Yes, we can cover radiographers in our medical indemnity insurance policies.

Why do I need medical indemnity insurance?

For most professionals it is a regulatory requirement to have some form of professional indemnity, for example: GPs and dentists. For others, such as radiographers, dental nurses or technicians, it is something that is recommended to provide you with protection in the event of an allegation being made against you (please refer to your regulatory body for guidance).

What is run off cover and why do I need it?

Once cover under your claims made policy has ended, no further claims can be made unless you have arranged run off cover. Run off cover continues to provide protection after you have ceased to practice in case any claims arise from treatment you previously provided.
