Like any insurance policy, MMI provides doctors with the option of choosing from a range of limits that will apply in the aggregate to all claims arising from treatment provided during the one year policy period. MMI provides choices of limit ranging from MYR 1 million to MYR 5 million in the aggregate. When selecting your MMI limit of indemnity, please consider the following: The nature of your practice. Some specialties, including obstetrics, orthopedics, and neurosurgery have a higher risk of large malpractice claims due to the nature of treatment or the age of the patients. The number of patients you treat. The MMI limit of indemnity is an aggregate limit, which means that the limit is shared amongst all claims arising from treatment given during the 12-month policy period. The possibility of the limit being required to cover more than one claim should be taken into account. The impact of inflation. In some cases, it is possible for claims to be brought many years after the date of treatment. The limit of indemnity that you select therefore needs to account for the possibility that a claim made in the future may be a higher value claim than it is today. Should you require any assistance in selecting an appropriate limit of indemnity, please contact the Aon MMI Service Team.
