Notify all insurance providers of the change to the practice. For example, insurers of your workers compensation, public liability, building and contents, and medical indemnity.
Run off insurance
Run off insurance is a form of professional indemnity insurance that covers your practice’s historic liabilities after it ceases to trade. Any claims made under a run-off insurance policy relate to events that occurred before you ceased operating.
The Australian Government’s Run-Off Cover Scheme (ROCS) provides secure insurance for doctors who have left private practice. You may decide to take out run-off cover to protect you and the practice against future claims.
Seek advice from your Medical Defence Organisation about what you may need, based on your individual circumstances.
