 What is not covered by Medical Malpractice Insurance?

The purpose of the insurance is to provide cover for mistakes made, it is not a general business insurance policy. For example, it doesn’t cover loss or damage to equipment – this would be covered by Contents insurance.

Period limitations of cover.

A “claims made” policy will pay those claims that occur while the policy is active and in force. Any claims made while the policy is active will be fully covered, as long as they are reported in a timely manner. Tapoly’s Medical Malpractice policy operates on a claims made basis.
