Doctor's Professional Indemnity
This policy provides adequate and affordable coverage for healthcare professionals against financial and reputational losses in the event of incidents of malpractice or unexpected outcomes, after medical procedures conducted within the scope of the professional services rendered under domestic legislation, ethical codes, and rules.
Who is the Insurance product for?
The Doctor’s Professional Indemnity Policy covers healthcare professionals (Doctors and Dentists) involved in either private practice or full-time employment licensed by the Medical Practitioners and Dentists Council.
These incidents include:
- Court judgments/awards for acts of professional negligence
- Legal costs of defense in court
- Cost of disciplinary hearings
- Cost of defamation suits
- Loss of documents
- Libel and Slander
In collaboration with Minet Kenya Healthcare Consulting, the policy provides proactive incident management and support to the insured doctor right from the time an incident occurs to the time the matter is resolved. Minet Healthcare will also provide online administrative and customer service support.
