You'll be hard pushed to find an insurance company who will advise you exactly how much cover you need, principally due to liability reasons. The responsibility to take out adequate cover largely falls in your hands, although our helpful advisors will be happy to discuss your options and explain how you can come to a conclusion regarding cost.
Sometimes you may also find that your job stipulates the amount you require. If you're looking for other options, you'll find that many industry organisations and professional bodies will likely be able to offer useful advice.
Any medical professional that deals with patients on a daily basis should get medical malpractice insurance. In our highly litigious society, a lawsuit by a disgruntled patient could cost you a fortune or even your career. So make sure that you have the right medical cover for your profession.

Run-off coverage protects you for a limited time even after you’ve left the medical field in case any claims are formulated against you by previous patients. In most situations, medical malpractice insurance ends when you exit the medical profession. Run-off coverage is used as a precautionary measure to provide you with extra peace of mind in the event a former action, event or patient alleges malpractice against you.
If you have indemnity arrangements that are not an occurrence based product – for example, claims made products – you will require run-off cover, unless the terms of your cover specify any defined circumstances where this would not be required. If you are unsure of your current indemnity arrangements then you should contact your existing indemnity provider.
