What is medical indemnity insurance

Medical Indemnity Insurance, or Medical Malpractice Cover are one and the same thing. They both essentially cover the named person or persons for any breach of professional duties that may occur as a part of the individual’s day to day work.

This type of insurance cover helps to protect individuals and businesses that work in the medical fields, from claims from people who feel that there has been a breach of duty, omission of care or important information or negligence. The insurance will cover you against any damages that may need to be paid out and the cost of legal cover for defending or representing your position in the claim.
