Updated cyber liability coverage

April 15, 2021

Cyber threats — including data breaches and ransomware attacks — require urgent attention and can quickly become catastrophic for your practice if not dealt with decidedly. Cyber liability coverage helps your practice survive these incidents by covering losses from cyber-related events. This coverage is included with every TMLT and LSA medical liability policy.

Beginning with July 1, 2021 renewals, we have updated our cyber liability coverage. These updates represent a more proactive approach when it comes to managing and defending cyber claims.

  • TMLT and LSA are working with Corvus Insurance — an insurance technology firm — to provide you with more robust cyber risk management. Corvus uses machine learning and other tech to help predict and prevent cyber claims.
     
  • Corvus uses technology to individually assess your practice’s online presence, and can reach out to you about any cyber vulnerabilities. Think of it as a practice review for your systems.
     
  • If you experience a cyber event, you will work with a breach response team to help resolve the incident and a claim handling team to help recover damages.
     
  • There is no increased premium cost for this coverage; but effective with renewals after July 1, 2021, there will be a $2,500 per event deductible for cyber claims.
     
  • Limits on cyber coverage remain $100,000/$100,000 ($100,000/$500,000 for entities). If you would like  higher limits, please contact Michael Litman or call 512-425-5937.
     
  • For dentists covered under LSA, the limits are $50,000 per claim/$50,000 per policy period.

If you are a policyholder, the changes will be automatically applied to your account at renewal. You will receive details about these policy updates with your policy renewal materials.
