Run off Cover Indemnity Scheme (ROCS)

This scheme helps Medical Defence Organisations (MDOs) and Medical Indemnity Insurers (MII) cover claims made against medical practitioners who are not working.

The ROCS reimburses MDOs and MIIs for 100% of the costs of claims against medical practitioners who have stopped working.

The claim must meet the eligibility requirements. To get a payment under the ROCS you need to submit an application to us.

The ongoing costs of this scheme are met by the Run Off Cover Support Payment. This is a levy payable by MDO’s and MII’s.

Relevant legislation

The Medical Indemnity Act 2002 is the legislation that applies to ROCS.
