Changing from another Medical Defence Organisation

Many practitioners who switch to MIPS are surprised how easy it is. Nominating the correct retroactive date provides uninterrupted cover for previous years of practice and a membership quote will help you to make an informed decision. In most cases, if you cancel your cover with your existing indemnity organisation you will receive a refund for a portion of the unused indemnity for the period of insurance (typically a calendar year or financial year).
