Expanded 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.

On July 1, 2021, we are expanding and updating our cyber liability coverage. These updates represent a more proactive approach when it comes to managing and defending cyber claims.

  • TMLT and LSA have partnered with Corvus Insurance — an insurance technology firm — to provide this coverage. Corvus uses machine learning and other tech to help predict and prevent cyber claims.
     
  • Using Corvus technology, we can individually assess your practice’s online presence and reach out to you about any cyber vulnerabilities. Think of it as a practice review for your systems. (More on this coming soon.)
     
  • If you experience a cyber event, you will work with the Corvus breach response team to help resolve the incident and their claim handling team to help recover damages.
     
  • There is no increased premium cost for this coverage; but effective 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, you will be able to request a quote and purchase these limits through a secure website (available soon).
     
  • 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.
