What cover is available to you?
Professional Indemnity (PI) Insurance
You may face situations where your patients look to hold you responsible for injuries they believe are due to your professional services. This is where Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance can step in.
PI insurance protects you by ensuring that your legal defence is coordinated and paid for if a claim is made against you. Your PI insurance also covers the cost of patient compensation or damages.
$10M Professional Indemnity insurance cover per claim
Worldwide cover (excluding USA)
It’s important to note that this cover is provided on a “claims made” basis, which means you must have coverage at the time a claim is made against you, regardless of when the “incident” took place. Therefore, you must maintain continuity of professional indemnity cover by renewing your policy annually to ensure you remain protected.
If you currently hold Professional Indemnity insurance with BMS, additional cover is available to you. This includes Entity Insurance. Speak to a BMS broker for more information or to get a quote.
