What is Medical Malpractice Insurance?

Medical malpractice, also known as medical indemnity insurance, provides cover against claims for professional negligence, acts or omissions in the course of your professional healthcare duties.

Typical reported claims can include misdiagnosis, injury, or mental or physical harm to a patient. In many cases these are accusations which can be defended by the insurer thus protecting our client’s reputation.

Run Off Cover and Extended Reporting Periods

Medical indemnity cover is written on a “claims made” basis, what this effectively means is that you need cover in place when a claim is reported as well as when the medical procedure was carried out.

Whilst you maintain insurance throughout your career this is not an issue, but should you cease to practice or retire you will need to arrange run off cover or an extended reporting period.

Whilst some insurers will only provide a three year reporting period aligned to the statute of limitations, we will work with you to build a more comprehensive solution depending on your role.

Doctors have been known to receive claims up to 10 years or more post retirement and such incidents may not be statute barred as the three-year period will begin from the point of diagnosis.

A patient surprisingly fell pregnant six months after a sterilisation procedure. It was later discovered that the clips applied to the Fallopian tube had not been correctly applied and the gynaecologist was subject to a negligence claim in excess of £35k.
What Information Will You Need to Provide a Quotation for Medical Malpractice?
Traditionally, obtaining a quotation for medical malpractice cover could be a slow and painful process. The good news is that we have developed a simple process that will enable us to compare indemnity cover from up to 5 of the UK’s leading malpractice insurers.

One of our dedicated medical professions advisors will take complete ownership of your case and work with you so that we can build a clear understanding of your expertise and procedures undertaken to our insurer partners – generally this can all be completed electronically.

We will also require a “letter of good standing” from your current provider / union which serves as a record of your claims history. We will then engage face-to-face discussions on your behalf to obtain the best possible terms, before reverting to you with our recommendations.
How Much Office Cover Do I Need?
Any business, but particularly startups or growing businesses, should ensure that sums insured are reviewed on a regular basis.

It is easy to quickly accumulate a significant amount of computer or other specialist equipment and it is important that your level of cover is sufficient for your needs. Public Liability or Professional Indemnity limits may also be driven by a contractual or regulatory requirement.
