Here’s what some of the health professionals insured with us have said about their experience with NZMPI:
“As a clinical dental technician NZMPI have been great in supporting me with professional indemnity and compared to other insurers at a very reasonable rate. Their service has been excellent and they even extended cover for me whilst I was doing voluntary service in my profession in Fiji. I would recommend them to anyone in the allied health field who needs Indemnity cover.” ~ Michael W.
“When I had a privacy complaint come through the team were absolutely crisp in negotiating relevant legal and ethical issues.” ~ Kay M.
“For NZ medical physicists engaged in radiological work NZMP have covered me for many years with affordable cover and without administrative problems.” ~ Giles W.
