To bring our members…
a fresh service experience
a value added approach to insurance
competitive and stable premiums
We are delighted to launch a new insurance scheme to protect practitioners against medical negligence claims in Singapore. Medical malpractice insurance is increasingly important to protect against both awards and legal costs arising from actual or alleged claims of negligence in the course of your practice.
MEDEFEND is designed to meet the long term and changing needs of doctors and medical specialists in Singapore. The product is co-insured by a consortium of international insurers.
MEDEFEND is more than just an insurance product, it's also a service. When you purchase MEDEFEND cover you also have access to some of the best medical malpractice protection and medico-legal advice available in Singapore today.
Marsh Specialty, with vast experience in managing professional indemnity insurance schemes will strive to ensure that members’ interest will be its utmost priority. A dedicated team that manages the scheme will ensure that claims and notifications will be handled competently and professionally. It is the intention of Marsh Specialty to bring its members a fresh, value added approach to insurance whilst maintaining competitive yet stable premium.
