What is radiographers professional indemnity Insurance?

What is radiographers professional indemnity Insurance?

Radiographers indemnity insurance, or malpractice insurance as it is also know, provides cover against claims for professional negligence, acts or omissions in the course of your professional duties as a radiographer. 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

Run Off Cover and Extended Reporting Periods

Professional 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.

Our specialist cover for ScOR members provides a three year extended reporting period as standard from the expiry of cover (subject to payment of an additional premium). We can also arrange more extensive run-off programmes and your Advisor will be able to discuss the various options with you.
