Usual types of cover
The risks faced by companies involved in the medtech sector are challenging. Often, these cannot be covered by standard, off-the shelf, business insurance policies.
Our specialist insurance solutions for medtech businesses includes:
If a problem arises from technology-based medical devices, treatments or diagnostic equipment, you could face a medical malpractice claim. For a medtech company, claims are likely to made directly to your business rather than an individual health professional.
Tech E&O provides cover for the supply, development, installation and maintenance of technology in healthcare delivery, as well as for breach of contract.
Cyber and privacy insurance tailored for digital healthcare companies including protection against the costs of extortion, fines and penalties, and initial breach response services.
If you operate in the medtech or digital health industry, one of the most valuable assets your business is likely to hold is your IP. Therefore it’s vital that you have the right insurance place to protect it.
If you manufacture or sell a medical device, diagnostic product or equipment you’re at risk of a compensation claim if the product causes damage or illness. Product liability insurance provides cover to protect against claims for personal injury or property/equipment damage arising from products sold by your business.
