Medical Practice Indemnity Insurance | Tego

Entity Medical Malpractice Insurance

Tego is the medical professionals’ trusted choice for medical malpractice insurance in Australia.

We offer competitive entity medical indemnity insurance with comprehensive features.

Individual medical practitioner indemnity insurance doesn’t cover everything. Yet, for many practices, it’s their sole method of shielding the business from potentially damaging claims arising from privacy breaches, administration errors and more. Medical practices interact with patients and support practitioners and ancillary services. Practice protocols, staff errors or system failures can create or contribute to poor patient outcomes, exposing the entity to legal action.
Relying on doctors’ own indemnity insurance policies to cover them in the event of a claim is risky, as there are many scenarios where that is not the case.
Tego’s entity medical malpractice insurance ensures your practice is protected against the complex matters that can arise.

What’s Covered In Tego’s Medical Malpractice Indemnity Insurance?

Tego’s medical practice indemnity insurance is a comprehensive policy covering a broad mix of exposures.
Medical malpractice – this protects against allegations of medical malpractice or clinical negligence. Cover includes abuse liability, complaint investigation costs, telehealth and vicarious liability of medical practitioners.
Errors & omissions – this protects against financial losses because of defects or contract failures. Cover includes defamation, breach of privacy, infringement of intellectual property, statutory liability and fidelity.
General liability – this protects the business and its employees from claims involving bodily injury or property damage. A Tego policy allows your practice to operate with confidence, knowing it’s covered for:
  • Services and equipment provided to doctors who rent rooms
  • Administration errors by employees, nurses and practice staff
  • Practice protocol failures, such as in triaging, scheduling and recalling patients
  • Breaches of privacy in handling patients’ personal information and records.
Medical practices need a stable insurance partner that understands the unique, fast-changing nature of treatments, technology and regulatory requirements in healthcare.
It is essential healthcare businesses have adequate insurance to cover them for the wide variety of claims that can arise from unforeseen circumstances.
Seemingly innocent errors of administrative staff can have devastating effects and expose medical practices to litigation, complaints and investigations.
Medical receptionists, practice managers, nurses and administrative staff play crucial roles in any practice. They are often the first points of contact for patients and often the intermediaries with whom patient follow up is organised. These staff often conduct important unsupervised activities that may put the practice itself at risk.
Practice protocols or system failures, such as triaging and recalling patients, can create or contribute to adverse patient outcomes that expose medical practices to claims.

What our customers are saying

David Moore, Obstetrician, Gynaecologist & Fertility Specialist

Being a FRANZCOG doesn’t necessarily mean 100% of my billings comes from the high-risk practice of obstetrics; I work also in gynaecology and fertility, both of which represent a lower claims risk to me and my indemnity provider. Tego offered something no other provider did (and I asked all of them!): they tailored my indemnity policy to my actual practice. Not only was Tego’s policy equal to the best policies on the market in terms of cover and facilities, it was significantly more affordable; more importantly, it was reflective of my actual practice.


David Moore, Obstetrician, Gynaecologist & Fertility Specialist

Dr. Benjamin Olesnicky Anaesthetist

The cover with Tego was more comprehensive than my existing insurer and I was pleasantly surprised to see some great savings on my premium. As a doctor passionate about patient safety and research, it’s great to see Tego support some of the projects we are running at the Northern Sydney Anaesthesia Research Institute (NSARI). Tego are attentive and treat me like an individual – not just a policy holder.

Dr Alina Zeldovich, Ophthalmologist & Co-Founder Beamers

I was very impressed with the way Tego’s underwriters assessed me on my individual merits. Once I compared the cover with my existing insurer, I realised that Tego was offering broader cover at a more competitive premium. It was an easy switch and I have been really happy with their service.


Dr Alina Zeldovich, Ophthalmologist & Co-Founder Beamers

Dr. Johnny Levy Medical Director, Primary Health Care Limited

I have found the legal advice – on a range of issues – given by Tego to be very useful. All interactions have been timely, friendly and have answered my questions fully.
