Tego understands that managing a successful medical practice in today’s environment can be very complex, and without the right cover it can be a risky business.
Many practice managers and owners assume the doctor’s practitioner indemnity covers everything. Truth is, it doesn’t. Which means, the practice as a business entity could be at risk from legal action arising from privacy breaches, disgruntled patients, employee disputes, staff errors and more.
With Tego’s Practice Indemnity Cover, your practice is properly covered against things you can’t control, like the actions of staff administering healthcare and unfavourable patient outcomes.
Practices face risks that may not be covered by a practitioners’ individual indemnity insurance.
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.
Services and equipment provided to doctors who rent rooms
Administration errors made by employees including nurses and practice staff
Failure of practice protocols including triaging, scheduling and recalling patients
Handling of personal information and patient records resulting in breaches of privacy

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
