About Medicus Indemnity

Medicus Indemnity

Medicus, through its appointed insurance consultant Aon New Zealand, has arranged a policy of indemnity insurance underwritten by Lumley General Insurance (N.Z.) Ltd.  Medicus has been established to provide all registered medical practitioners in New Zealand with an affordable indemnity insurance alternative that is run by New Zealand doctors for New Zealand doctors.


Why you should choose Medicus

As a member of Medicus you will receive your own insurance policy knowing that you have the backing of a New Zealand based board of directors who are intent on providing you with the best possible support at a time of medico-legal need.


While Medicus uses the service of commercial insurance underwriters and professional insurance consultants, the society itself is registered as a not for profit organisation. The society does not participate in the underwriting of risk. It does act on your behalf to get the best available insurance policy.
