What is medical indemnity insurance?

Avant indemnity insurance policy provides cover for acts, errors or omissions you make in providing healthcare. This means if there is a complaint, claim, investigation or legal action made against you, then you can notify Avant. This includes being sued (i.e. litigation). The legal defence costs and any further costs such as damages you are required to pay due to a settlement or court order are paid by Avant, provided they fall within the scope of the policy.
