Medical insurance protection
Medical Indemnity Insurance plays a vital role within the Australian health system by working to protect both doctors and patients in the event of an adverse incident arising from medical care.
While Australia’s healthcare system is known to be quite safe, unfortunately things can occasionally go wrong and patients may sometimes be harmed in the process of receiving medical care. Thankfully, Clear Insurance is able to provide you with tailored insurance solutions, which will respond for you during unforeseen events.
What is medical indemnity insurance?
Medical indemnity insurance works to protect doctors and patients as well as medical and allied health establishments in the event of an adverse incident arising from medical care. This particular type of insurance is able to provide protection from claims for financial loss, bodily injury or property damage, which may arise from acts, errors or omissions in the provision of health care providers.
